An essential part of TEDMED’s mission is assembling a diverse mix of individuals, each with an important perspective on new ideas, trends, treatments or technologies that can contribute to health and medicine. These individuals become our Delegates at TEDMED.
We are looking for innovators and collaborators from across society, whether from health, medicine, technology or not, to participate in an inclusive conversation about how to achieve a healthier future.
Today’s challenges are as much social and commercial as they are medical, and that puts us all on the Front Lines of this struggle. However, some candidates may need financial assistance to attend our annual event in person.
TEDMED’s Patron Fund provides scholarships to support exceptional individuals who would make outstanding Delegates, and who would greatly benefit from attending TEDMED, but who could not otherwise afford to participate.
If that describes you, and you are interested in applying for a Front Line Scholarship, get started by submitting an application today. To do so, please follow the prompts for “TEDMED’s Front Line Scholarship Program” when applying to attend.

What makes TEDMED unique is our diverse mix of Delegates, each with something vital to add to new ideas, trends, treatments and technologies in health and medicine. However, some great candidates may need help to attend.

If that’s you, apply today. The deadline for all applications is March 25th. Full and half-scholarships will be offered, more half than full, to allow as many folks to attend as possible. Scholarships do not cover travel and expenses.
