Conference Funding Program (CFP) provides Alfaisal medical students with the financial support to present their accepted abstracts in any conference around the world.

Applications are open all-round the year. Please make sure your CFP application fulfills all the terms and conditions listed below:

  1. The applicant must be registered as a full-time student in the College of Medicine.
  2. The applicant must be an author on the research paper.
  3. The applicant’s affiliation must be College of Medicine, Alfaisal University.
  4. Only one student will be funded for each unpublished abstract. No funding can be requested for an abstract that was already funded by URC earlier or published in any journal.
  5. The research study submitted to the conference must at least be ready for submission to a journal.
  6. The applicant must have no other source of support for attending the conference.
  7. Applications for conference funding should be received, in their entirety, no less than 25 working days prior to the conference start date to provide ample time for processing.
  8. Each student is entitled to only one funding for presenting an abstract in any conference. Only those students who publish their previous presented abstracts in a journal will be excluded from this condition.
  9. The conference funding program is meant to defray the following costs only – visa costs, air tickets, conference registration (not to exceed the student member early bird conference registration rate) and hotel accommodations (either the conference’s recommended hotel or a hotel of equal or lesser value). Funding will not be covered for food, transportation within the conference city, including car rental, or any other personal expenses.
  10. Since funds are limited, the CFP only partially funds students for their trip.
  11. Not all CFP applications are approved. Only those applications that meet all the above criteria and include a reasonable quote will be reviewed by the URC and forwarded to the CoM for approval.
