U-M Injury Center SAVIR Conference Scholarships

The University of Michigan Injury Center is pleased to host the semi-annual SAVIR conference, this fall, and offer 15 student scholarships. The conference will be held September 18-20, 2017, at the University of Michigan League in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

SAVIR is a professional organization that provides leadership and fosters excellence in the science of violence and injury prevention. Our 2017 conference will be devoted to the theme of Innovations, and the student scholarships will provide currently enrolled students the opportunity to learn, connect, and grow with hundreds of other who share their interest in preventing injury and violence. This will be a great opportunity to attend a high-caliber national conference. Please see below for additional information on eligibility and the application process.


Approximately 15 scholarships will be awarded. Each will include complimentary registration (up to a $335 value) to attend the SAVIR conference, Sept 18-20 in Ann Arbor, MI. The total value of each scholarship ranges in prices based on student preference to attend the full conference or a single day.
