Each grant is set at an amount intended to cover transportation, hotel and conference registration costs. The deadline for submitting an online grant proposal is Monday, April 1, 2019.

Note: first consideration will be given to applicants who have not received a Lilly grant in the past three years.


"Thanks for this educational grant. I attended the Lilly Conference and thought it was a very good forum for learning and networking. In fact, I have not attended a conference recently that offered so much new information or stimulating conversation. I really enjoyed this opportunity and am grateful that I was offered this type of support to be able to attend this caliber conference."
