Fellows-in-Training Scholarships

Funding for Fellows-in-Training scholarships is made possible in part by support of the American College of Rheumatology Fellows Educational Fund. Scholarships are reportable payments to physicians under the Physicians Payment Sunshine Act. See more information on the scope and contents of such reporting on the CMS website.

The American College of Rheumatology Fellows Education Fund Eligibility document outlines the eligibility requirements and benefits of the FIT scholarship for ACR professional meetings and the ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in the 2017-2018 academic year.

Fellows-in-training are notified by email when scholarships open.
