Update: The deadline for scholarship applications has passed and all scholarships have been awarded.

This conference provides a deep dive into this topic, but also features a one-on-one mentoring session, and a virtual round table for students to learn about research career paths and to network with scientists. There is also a session providing practical information on increasing equity and inclusion in academia.

Since this conference is fully virtual, the scholarships will cover the conference registration fee. 


Any student currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in a related area can apply for a scholarship.

Application Requirements

Application for a clinical or student scholarship will require submission of an essay of between 800-1200 words explaining why you would like to attend the meeting and what you would hope or expect to gain from your attendance. If you have experience with the diagnosis or treatment of vestibular disorders, whether through clinical care or research, we would like to hear about it in your essay. Note: A lack of experience with the conference topic will not preclude you from receiving a scholarship.

Selection Criteria

1. Our remaining scholarship slots will be reserved for applicants who identify as being part of an underrepresented group, including those with a disability.
2. The conference organizers are responsible for selecting the awardees and their decisions are final.
