Bursaries

Please read the the below information carefully before preparing your bursary submission.

The ESP will provide a limited number of bursaries to support the attendance of residents and trainees in pathology at the congress in Bilbao. Bursaries include a free registration to the congress as well as a monetary grant of € 150. Membership of the ESP and submission of an abstract are required. A CV, proof of residency and a supporting letter - to explain why the bursary is needed - as well as a copy of passport, have to be submitted during the application process.

We kindly ask you to respect the guidelines for preparation and submission of abstracts.


Requirements (mandatory)


Your application can only be considered if all of the following requirements are met:

  • Membership of ESP
  • Submission of an abstract
  • Submission of a brief Curriculum Vitae
  • Supporting letter (official letter by your head of department/institute to let the committee know, why you should be granted a bursary)
  • Proof of trainee/resident status for residents/trainees under 40 (i.e. born after 7 September 1978)
  • Copy of passport

Applications will be evaluated by a 'bursaries' committee' to ensure fairness. The results will be sent to all applicants by email.

Important information


Please note that only complete applications will be considered for a bursary. Bursary applications submitted well before the deadline (11 April 2018) will be checked and followed up on if documentation is not complete. Bursary applications submitted right by the deadline cannot be followed up on - only the documentation submitted by the deadline will be considered.
