Hearing the Voice Travel Scholarships

Funded by Hearing the Voice, these travel scholarships are aimed at people with lived experience of hallucinations who would like to attend the Inaugural North American Conference of the ICHR in Chicago in September. There are two scholarships available under the Hearing the Voice scheme:

Academic scholarship
Applicants should be researchers with an interest in hallucinations who have lived experience of voice-hearing or other unusual experiences. The successful candidate should be willing to write a short blog post after the event on their experience of the conference, to be posted on the Hearing the Voice website.
