The COUR committee encourages the sponsor to complete a recommendation form for the scholar, if the scholar is sufficiently known to the sponsor. The recommendation form is available on the POSNA Website. The sponsor agrees to assist the scholar during the POSNA/IPOS meeting in assisting with transportation to and from the airport, orientation, introductions and general assistance. If the scholar is attending the POSNA meeting, the sponsor will also attend the welcome dinner for the COUR Scholars and the COUR Symposium at POSNA meeting where the scholars give presentations. If there is an additional visit scheduled to an institution before or after the meeting, the sponsoring institution (not POSNA) is responsible for working with the scholar for travel plans to their institution, lodging and required documentation related to the institutional visit.
