These scholarships are part of the Canadian Pain Society’s commitment to supporting participation and engagement of people with lived experience at the 2021 Virtual Scientific Meeting, April 28-30, 2021.

Any person, caregiver or family member with lived experience relevant to our conference’s central theme (pain) is eligible to apply. Each Lived Experience Scholarship will cover full conference registration, which includes access to the virtual meeting platform, all scientific content and the ability to network with clinicians and pain researchers participating in the meeting.

To Apply

Submissions must be made through our online form.

Complete applications include: (1) Completed online application form; (2) Letter of Interest – A one page (maximum) letter clearly stating the reason(s) why the person with lived experience/caregiver would like to attend the meeting. In addition, applicants should indicate whether they have previously applied for and/or were awarded a Lived Experience Scholarship (formerly called a “CPS Patient Scholarship”) and if so, how many times and the year(s).

Applications will be reviewed by members of the Scientific Program Committee that have Lived Experience of Pain.

Criteria for Selection of Awardees

  • People with lived experience of pain who are part of the Scientific Program Committee or presenters in symposia will automatically receive full meeting registration and do not need to apply.
  • In an effort to use the scientific meeting to catalyze networking opportunities, successful applicants must demonstrate a history of patient engagement, community outreach and/or advocacy. They must also demonstrate a strong desire and ability to make an impact at the conference itself, and in their communities with the knowledge and skills they gain.
  • We strive for diversity amongst scholarship recipients and encourage applications from children/adolescents and adults who are racialized persons, Black, Indigenous and people of colour, women, LGBTQ2S+, persons with disabilities, and others who bring diverse perspectives to the field of pain.
