Each year, the International Outreach Committee of CMBES invites applications for a travel grant in aid of supporting volunteer work in Clinical Engineering. This grant is intended to partially defray the travel costs of a Clinical Engineer, Biomedical Engineering Technologist, or Clinical Engineering student, who is a CMBES member and a Canadian Resident, who is planning to travel to a developing country to do volunteer work related to Clinical Engineering within the next year.
A grant of $1500 will be awarded to a qualified candidate. Applicants are expected to cover at least half of the costs of the proposed volunteer activity through fundraising efforts or out-of-pocket payment by the participant and their family. The CMBES Travel Grant is meant to partially cover travel costs.
The call for applications is sent out in January of each year, with a deadline of March 31. The award is announced in mid April.
Further details can be found on the CMBES Travel Grant application form.
