EBF3 HADDS Travel Grant Application

The EBF3 HADDS Foundation is offering a travel grant for those in need of financial assistance in our community. All individuals with HADDS and their families are encouraged to apply!

Eligibility & Parameters:

A limited number of travel grants are available to individuals and families diagnosed with EBF3 HADDS who are participating in the 2020 Social Clinic Weekend. A separate travel grant application will open in early 2021 for travel to the 2021 EBF3 HADDS International Conference. We hope that the travel grant opportunity will provide support to families that may otherwise be unable to attend.  While we cannot cover all the travel expenses for families, we can provide additional support to attendees who are in a situation where they need an extra boost in their travel budget in order to attend. The amount of each grant may vary based on need (family size, distance traveled), and total number of applicants. The maximum amount of a single award is $500 

Applications are being accepted as of now, until Sunday, February 23rd, 2020 for the Social Clinic Weekend July 23-24, 2020.


If the number of applications exceeds the available funding, priority will be given based on the following considerations:

  • Those families who will have multiple family members diagnosed with HADDS in attendance at the conference   

  • Travel distance from Houston, TX / International constituents

  • Applicants from under-represented groups

  • First-time HADDS Event/ Clinic / Conference attendees

  • Financial need


In the future, it is important to note that previous Travel Grant recipients are eligible to apply, though, priority is given to new awardees.

Submission Requirements:

1. An application form (below) which includes a brief statement.

Award Amount:

The travel grant includes Event Registration and a Travel Stipend of up to $500 to be applied to your clinic co-pays/expenses, hotel, flights/gas and meals. 


Important Dates:

Application Deadline:

Sunday, February 23th, 2020


Notification of Award:

Sunday March 15, 2020


All travel stipends will be provided at the event in the form of an issued bank check.


Conditions of Acceptance:

If you are awarded a travel grant, you agree to the following conditions:

  1. Event Registration: You must register for the event prior to the deadline and provide information on all accompanying attendees from your family/group.

  2. Full Attendance: We request you attend the full duration of the Social Clinic Weekend and its activities, when applying for the travel grant.

  3. Use: Use grant funds explicitly for conference-related expenses.

  4. Deferment: If selected for a grant, you are allowed to defer your grant for one year. If you do not use funds during this time, your grant will be forfeited and you will need to reapply. 


Failure to meet the conditions of acceptance may jeopardize your eligibility for reimbursement and future Travel Grants.
