The RSFF Scholarship will be given to the 5 highest-rated qualifying abstracts received and will support the awardee to attend the summit in person to give an oral presentation. 

For each individual scholarship recipient, the RSFF Scholarship will support:  

  • Complimentary registration to WHS 2024 
  • Return economy flights to Lisbon (up to an agreed upon amount)

All those submitting an abstract that meet the above criteria will be eligible for the RSFF Scholarship. The abstracts will be reviewed and rated by a panel of global experts.
