Developing World Initiative Travel Grants

Special travel grants will be awarded to delegates coming from non-high income countries (see the World Bank list at for reference.

The special travel grants are intended for people with financial difficulties, which otherwise would have prevented them from attending the meeting and include economy travel, housing and free registration.

The recipient of this grant is not expected to bring their spouse or other significant person to the meeting, as this would imply that the applicant is not in the economic position that this grant is reserved for.

Applications must be sent to the Secretary-General, Carine de Beaufort ( with a CV, stating your current position and work for children with diabetes. There will be an application fee of 50 USD, which will be returned upon arrival in Toronto. The deadline for these travel grants is March 1, 2014 to allow sufficient time for travel planning and visa applications. Only participants who have submitted an abstract (including abstracts in the category “Diabetes project in developing country”) for the meeting will be considered for these grants.

Please note these deadlines have now passed.
