Bursaries of the ESP

The ESP will provide a limited number of bursaries to support the attendance of residents and trainees in pathology at the congress in Amsterdam. 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 - have 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 for residents/trainees under 40 (i.e. born after 7 September 1977 - to be proven by ID card/passport)

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