Alzheimer’s Association International Conference | July 28 – Aug. 1, 2024 | Philadelphia, USA, and Online

Conference Fellowships

Apply for a conference fellowship and seize the opportunity to share your work with the world! Presenting authors can apply for a conference fellowship during the abstract submission period in December/January and the Developing Topics submission period in April. A limited number of fellowships are awarded in various packages that may include one, two or three of the following:

  • Complimentary AAIC registration.
  • One round trip, non-refundable, coach-class airfare (directly booked and billed through the Alzheimer’s Association).
  • Four nights of hotel stay (room and tax only; directly booked and billed through the Alzheimer’s Association).

How to Apply

In order to apply for a conference fellowship, an individual must be a presenting author of an abstract and provide a statement of need (no more than 300 words) in the last step of the abstract submission process.

Criteria and Eligibility

Conference fellowships are very competitive and are awarded based on a thorough review of the application materials and financial need, with consideration of:

  • Country: Priority is given to presenting authors based in a low, lower-middle or upper-middle income country, as designated by the World Bank, or a developing economy or economy in transition, as designated by the United Nations.
  • Presentation type: Priority is given to presenting authors selected for an oral presentation.
  • Average abstract review score: Priority is given to presenting authors with higher average scores.
  • Career stage: Priority is given to presenting authors who are students, postdoctoral researchers or early-career researchers.
  • AAIC preconference participation: Priority is given to podium presenters at an AAIC preconference event.
  • Statement of need: The statement of need is also considered.


Final decisions are made once abstracts are selected for inclusion in the AAIC program, with recipients notified by the end of March (main abstract submission) and by the end of May (Developing Topics submission). Failure to accept the fellowship by the designated date will result in forfeiture of the fellowship.

Registration and Booking Travel

If you apply for a conference fellowship, please do not register or book your travel for AAIC until you receive the notification as reimbursements are not provided. Failure to adhere to this guideline will result in forfeiture of all or part of the fellowship as determined by the Association.
