Research Fellowships

All fellows will be selected by ARCF Trustees from researchers having high quality abstracts accepted for presentation at the AARC Congress 2018. Since all accepted abstracts are considered no formal application is required. Under special circumstances determined by the ARCF Board of Trustees, fellowships may be awarded to highly qualified researchers identified through other sources. Visit the OPEN FORUM Call for Abstracts page for more information. Fellows will be presented awards at the AARC Awards Ceremony.

Each award consists of a plaque, airfare, one night lodging, and registration for the AARC Congress 2018.
