Hill Day Scholarship

Supporting Patient Advocates

The AACI Hill Day Scholarship was established to reduce financial barriers for patient advocates interested in attending the annual AACI/AACR Hill Day. This year, AACI will offer scholarships of up to $1,000 to enable advocates to share a patient perspective during congressional meetings.

To be eligible for a scholarship, the nominee should be a well-known patient advocate who has a relationship with an AACI member cancer center or AACR. The recipient can be a patient, former patient, friend, or family member of a patient, enrolled in a clinical trial or receiving standard treatment.

Up to five scholarship recipients will be selected, and the cancer center representative submitting the application will be notified of their nominee’s status by Friday, April 26, 2024.

A representative of the cancer center submitting the nomination is encouraged to accompany the patient advocate on all Hill Day visits. The scholarship recipient or cancer center sponsoring the participant will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $1,000 following their travel to Washington, DC, after submitting itemized receipts per AACI’s travel policy. Special consideration will be made for qualified nominees with basic expenses exceeding $1,000. 

Nominations are due by 5:00 pm eastern time on Friday, April 5. If your nominee is selected, they will be required to register for Hill Day

Please note: AACI reserves the right to rescind the award if the recipient cancels their Hill Day travel and/or meetings less than one week before the event (May 9, 2024).
