ASEF Council Travel Grants

Every spring, the ASE Foundation funds Council Travel Grants for trainees and others to support their attendance at the ASE Annual Scientific Sessions. These grants are part of an ongoing effort by the Foundation, in assistance with the Council Steering Committees, to encourage individuals in cardiovascular specialties to focus on the respective echocardiography subspecialty and to recruit enthusiastic new members to the Councils.

By facilitating their attendance at the annual meeting, these grants provide recipients with a deeper understanding of the imaging field and cultivate the development of meaningful mentoring relationships with established imaging faculty. Applicants must be a current member of ASE in order to apply for one of the Council Travel Grants.

In accepting funding from the ASE Foundation, recipients agree to provide a recent photo of themselves, as well as a testimonial about their experience at the Annual ASE Scientific Sessions. Recipients who fail to attend the 34th Annual ASE Scientific Sessions, June 23 – 26, 2023 will forfeit their grant funding.

Application is open to trainees in the following disciplines – Cardiovascular Sonography, Circulation & Vascular Ultrasound, Critical Care Echocardiography, Interventional Echocardiography, Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, and Perioperative Echocardiography.
