Adopt a Delegate / Student

Please note that the application process for the Adopt a Delegate / Student Program is now closed. However, if you wish to donate please click here and choose “Modify Registration”, if you are not attending the Congress and wish to donate to support a delegate from a developed world setting please click here.  Your contribution will be added to many we have already received to support delegates and students who require additional financial support to attend our World Congress.


The IUPESM 2015 World Congress is proud to introduce the ‘Adopt a Delegate/Student’ initiative, giving prospective delegates from a developed world setting the opportunity to adopt or part finance the registration and accommodation costs of a peer from an emerging economy. Delegates can support other delegates by donating any amount they feel appropriate during their own online registration process. To encourage co-ownership of the project, adopted (sponsored) delegates will carry financial responsibility for return travel to the Congress, while the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation.

The IUPESM 2015 World Congress recognizes that most people from emerging countries don’t have the financial resources to attend meetings outside their country. With this initiative the IUPESM 2015 World Congress hopes to provide additional opportunities for those researchers and physicians to attend IUPESM 2015 World Congress, exchange information and set up a network with researchers and physicians from all over the world attempting to help the sponsored delegate’s research both now and in the future.

We hope that many delegates will participate as ‘sponsors’ and would like to thank everyone for their consideration and support. All ‘sponsors’ will be acknowledged on the Congress website and in the Onsite Program. In addition to that we would be happy to arrange for face to face meetings between sponsors and sponsored delegates.

Those individuals who would like to apply to receive funding support from the Adopt A Delegate / Student Program are required to submit a cover letter to the WC2015 Congress Organizing Committee explaining the need for funding assistance. Applicants must acknowledge that they will carry the financial responsibility for travel expenses related to the Congress. If successful, the donated money will be used to help offset costs for registration and/or accommodation only. If applicants are accepted for abstract presentation, they must still complete their registration and payment first before the presenter registration deadline.  Applicant letters can be submitted by email to iupesm2015-marketing at icsevents.com.
