The UltraEcho, Ltd. Cardiovascular Student Travel Grant

The American Society of Echocardiography Education and Research Foundation (ASEF) is pleased to announce the availability of a travel grant for a sonography student enrolled in an accredited CAAHEP cardiovascular ultrasound program.  The travel grant program is designed to provide partial financial support to a sonography student who would otherwise be unable to attend the ASE 28th Annual Scientific Sessions in Baltimore, MD, June 2-7, 2017, or any other 2017 educational courses directly sponsored by ASE.  A complimentary registration fee is included with the travel grant award, along with a one year student membership in the American Society of Echocardiography.  To view a list of ASE’s 2017 directly sponsored educational programs, please click here.

This travel grant is based on financial need. ASEF thanks UltraEcho, Ltd. for sponsoring this annual student travel grant.
