The monetary award is intended to cover expenses associated with the recipient's attendance at the ASCO Annual Meeting and to participate in the panel discussion "Cancer in the Developing World." Specifically, the monetary award covers the recipient's travel to and from the meeting, hotel stay during the meeting, and a per diem allowance for meals and ground transportation. In addition to the monetary award, grant recipients are provided with complimentary Annual Meeting registration and up to ten tickets to Annual Meeting paid sessions. At the Annual Meeting, recipients are invited to attend the IDEA opening reception, the ASCO Foundation Special Awards reception, and the World Oncology Leaders Reception.
