Congress Bursaries

Bursary submission is closed. Notifications will be sent in late May 2022.
In addition, all bursary recipients will be published on this website. 

The ESP will provide a limited number of bursaries to support the attendance of residents and trainees in pathology at the congress in Basel. 

Bursaries include a free registration to the congress as well as a monetary grant of EUR 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.

The deadline for submission was 21 April 2022.

Important information

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

Please note that abstracts can only be presented (and thus published) on-site, not virtually! Please ensure that you are able to travel to Basel when submitting an abstract.

Please note that only complete applications will be considered for a bursary. Bursary applications submitted well before the deadline (21 April 2022) 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.

Please do not submit your abstract twice (as a "normal" abstract submission AND a bursary application).

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