Heart Rhythm Travel Scholarships

Heart Rhythm Travel Scholarships

The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) encourages and supports the efforts of early career electrophysiologists and other heart rhythm professionals to participate in the Society’s activities. To that end, the Heart Rhythm Travel Scholarships support participation in the Annual Scientific Sessions with a complimentary registration to Heart Rhythm and up to $1,500 in reimbursement of travel costs paid after the Annual Scientific Sessions.

The Heart Rhythm Society's Heart Rhythm 2020 Travel Scholarship supports the efforts of residents, fellows-in-training, post-doctoral researchers, and allied health professionals focused on heart rhythm disorders, to attend the Annual Scientific Sessions. The number of travel scholarships to be awarded is contingent upon the level of funding achieved through individual donations and the abstract submission fees. All travel scholarship funds are derived from non-commercial sources.

Heart Rhythm 2020 Travel Scholarship award winners receive reimbursement for up to $1,500 of the travel expenses and complimentary registration to #HRS2020.

Scholarships are available for third-year residents, Cardiology fellows, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology fellows, and Post-doctoral Researchers interested in pursuing electrophysiology research, either in academic settings or private practice. Allied Professional applicants must be licensed RNs, PAs, NPs, or technicians employed in an accredited institution or established cardiac electrophysiology program/practice.

Heart Rhythm Members will receive priority over non-members, but membership is not required. Learn more about becoming a member of the Heart Rhythm Society today.

The Travel Scholarships seek to:

  • Introduce health care professionals who have expressed an interest in electrophysiology to the multiple facets of the electrophysiology specialty
  • Promote continued collaborative relationships between early career professionals and experienced electrophysiology professionals
  • Provide opportunities for mentoring of clinician scientists and health care professionals early in their training
