General Travel Award

Under the authority of the ESPID Committee for Scientific Affairs and Awards

+ AIMS (click to open/close)

ESPID makes a number of awards to members towards the cost of travel, accommodation and registration fees for scientific meetings.

This award scheme is not available to support attendance of the annual ESPID meeting, for which separate schemes are available (ESPID travel award, Walter Marget Educational Workshop, Resource Poor Country schemes), nor any other ESPID supported events where separate travel schemes are in place (i.e. ADVAC Course, Penta, Oxford and etc.) nor is it available to attend the ICAAC meeting as they have their own bursary scheme available (ICAAC).

Under this scheme, maximum awards are:

  • EUR 1000 for travel to USA / Americas
  • EUR 600 for travel within Europe
  • EUR 200 for travel within the applicant’s own country

Please, note - where a lower early registration fee is offered by the conference being attended, only this rate will be reimbursed.

+ ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA (click to open/close)

The following criteria are considered in awarding applicants for travel awards:

  • Applicant must be less than 40 years old on the day of the deadline (N/A for NITAGs meetings attendance)
  • Young applicants for whom alternative sources of funding may be fewer
  • Applicants who have not previously received ESPID travel awards. Members will not be eligible to receive more than one travel award under this scheme in any single calendar year.
