Endorsements and Grants

The ISN reviews all applications to determine the scientific and educational merit of the proposed content, however ISN’s endorsement is for the promotion of education in general and the specific content of the event/course is the responsibility of the organizer.

The application, reviewal, and endorsement process is FREE for ISN Collective and Affiliated societies, Sister Renal and Sister Transplant Centers, and ISN Regional Training Centers.

All other organizations are required to pay a standard application fee to cover the administrative cost of processing the application. This fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee an endorsement of the event.

All requests must be made via the application form (below) and submitted at least three months prior to the event; reviewal cannot be guaranteed for applications submitted outside the required time-frame. All endorsement applications will be reviewed and a decision provided within 30 calendar days.

Successful applicants will be provided with a formal acceptance letter, the ISN logo for inclusion on printed and online material, and a post-event report form which lists required deliverables and must be completed and returned to ISN within 30 days of the event.

The endorsed event will be included in the calendar of ISN Stakeholders’ Events.

Please note that the ISN logo should NOT be included on event materials (including the event’s website) until AFTER endorsement has been granted and can only be used for the endorsed event. The following statement should accompany the logo: ISN endorsement is for the promotion of education in general; the specific content of the event/course is the responsibility of the organizer.

ISN endorsement does not include financial support for the event. Non-compliance with the terms specified in the endorsement policy will result in future requests being denied.
