Congress Bursaries

The ESP/IAP will provide a limited number of bursaries to support the attendance of residents and trainees in pathology at the virtual congress. Bursaries include a free registration to the virtual congress. 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, has to be submitted during the application process.

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
  • Copy of passport (applicants must be under 40; i.e. born after 28 August 1981)

Important information

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

Please note that only complete applications will be considered for a bursary. Bursary applications submitted well before the deadline (14 April 2021) 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.
