Help us achieve our goal of raising $40,000 to support Educational Travel Grants!
The Educational Travel Grants are how we build the attendee base together. Vendors provide the support, MSACL solicits and invites individuals to attend the congress. The focus is on recruiting individuals who are leading, or training to lead, a clinical laboratory, but still trying to understand the value of mass spectrometry in the clinical setting. This is how we actively build the market for clinical mass spectrometry and develop the field.
All contributions to the Educational Travel Grants are used exclusively to support conference attendance of Grantees by wholly or partially covering their registration, hotel, and/or airfare costs.
Educational Grantees are generally early in their career and (1) have a strong potential for meaningful contribution, as determined by their submitted abstract and Award application, (2) are on track to lead a clinical laboratory and are keen to learn more about the pros and cons of mass spectrometry versus conventional methodologies, (3) currently lead a clinical lab but want to learn more about the benefits of mass spectrometry, or (4) are driving the translation of mass spec research to the clinic.
These grants not only support the growth and participation of individuals early in their career path, they build cohesion in the field while increasing awareness, and provide vendors access to key potential customers early in their careers.
Educational Travel Grant support can be made with a contribution of as little as $2,000. To support the program and become a sponsor, please fill out the Educational Travel Grant Sponsorship Form.
As a supporter of the Educational Travel Grants you will have the exclusive opportunity to mingle with the Travel Grantees during the Grantee Receptions held on Tuesday evening and maybe also Wednesday (to be determined).
A benefit of becoming a Travel Grant sponsor is that your company name will then be viewable from every webpage for the MSACL 2015 EU conference. We believe very strongly in supporting this initiative and want to make sure that your company gets the appropriate exposure for supporting this program! Examples of company exposure options based on support level are shown below.
In addition to top-of-page exposure, at levels of $10,000+, your logo will be placed in the rotational queue for the MSACL 2015 US video signage that will be shown during the conference.

|Sponsor A ($8,000), Sponsor B ($6,000), Sponsor C ($4,000), Sponsor D ($2,000)|
