IFSHT/IFSSH Triennial Congress Travel Bursary

The IFSHT Executive Committee wishes to inform you of the following travel bursary opportunity.


This bursary is designated to provide financial support for therapists to attend the IFSSH/IFSHT Triennial Congress. Any qualified occupational or physical therapist with an interest in the area of hand therapy may apply. The applicant must have at least two years of experience in hand therapy. Preference will be given to applicants who are invited speakers and from IFSHT member countries. Applications from other professionals who are invited IFSHT Congress speakers are also eligible to apply. This may include keynote speakers that are OT/PT’s but hand therapy is not their specialty and they may not be from a member country.

Recipients receive financial assistance towards specific Congress expenses. Recipients are reimbursed after the congress has been completed. They therefore must be able to incur the initial expense.

Recipients will provide the IFSHT Treasurer with requested banking information and receipts as evidence of the expense having been incurred before any reimbursement is completed.




  • Demonstrated leadership skills in his/her own country.
  • A letter of support from a professional colleague supporting your application and leadership skills. This may be the same person that provides a letter of recommendation.
  • Contributed to hand therapy knowledge through publications, research, or educational events.
  • Actively participate in the hand therapy society or promoted the founding of a hand therapy society in his/her country.
  • Be available to travel to the IFSSH/IFSHT Triennial Congress. being held in Washington, D.C. USA
  • Return to their country and share their newfound knowledge with fellow therapists.
  • Applicants from countries with low Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or currency challenges will be given preference.
  • Delegates from Full Member Countries are low priority for this grant unless they are from a low GDP country.
  • Therapists from the congress host country may not apply.
  • Keynote speakers. A host society can apply for the funds for a specific keynote speaker.
