What makes TEDMED unique is our diverse mix of Delegates, each with something vital to add to new ideas, trends, treatments and technologies in health and medicine. However, some great candidates may need help to attend. TEDMED’s Patron Fund supports exceptional individuals who would be outstanding additions to our group of Delegates and who would significantly benefit from attending TEDMED.
If that’s you, apply today. The deadline for all applications is March 25th. Full and half-scholarships will be offered — more half than full, to allow as many folks to attend as possible. Scholarships do not cover travel and expenses.
Good luck, and we hope to meet you in April!
