IOHA Travel Grants 2020




The IOHA offers a limited number of travel grants to attend the biennial conference. The grant can be used to cover some travel costs, accommodation and conference fees. Applicants are strongly advised to look for additional funding as the IOHA grants are meant to supplement funding from other sources.

Members of the IOHA 2020 Grants Committee are Professor Outi Fingerroos (Finland), Professor Anne Heimo (Finland), Professor Martha Norkunas (USA), and Senior Specialist Mark Wong (Singapore).
