Atlantic PH Forum Scholarship Guidelines

We understand that life with PH can be expensive. That’s why PHA Canada offers a Scholarship Program to help reduce costs for PH patients and their caregivers to participate in educational events, such as the Atlantic Forum. The scholarship fund provides financial assistance to as many qualified applicants as we can support each year. An anonymous Scholarship Committee makes all scholarship decisions.

Scholarship funds are made available thanks to the support of PHA Canada’s sponsors. The Scholarship Program is intended to benefit members of the community who, without financial assistance, would not otherwise be able to participate in this unique educational opportunity. As such, we encourage those who do not require financial assistance in order to attend, to not apply for a scholarship.

Based upon available resources, scholarships will primarily be awarded to cover the costs of hotel accommodation and/or transportation (see guidelines below for further details).
