These scholarships (up to a maximum of 2000 euros) made on the recommendation of the Endowment Committee are designed to encourage Junior Trainee Undergraduate Student Members on a European training pathway and Specialist Trainee Members of EACMFS (plus those who have successfully completed training as specialists within three years of the date of application) to travel to other countries to enhance their education and training.
Full details of the planned visit will be required together with a letter from the host unit confirming the arrangements and signed approval of the head of department of the current post. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that approval for leave of absence has been obtained from the employing authority. EACMFS will not be responsible for the payment of locum-tenens fees at any time and it is strongly recommended that prospective candidates seek advice and approval from the respective national bodies supervising the training programmes. Successful candidates will be required to submit a written report to the Secretary General not more than three months after return from the host unit.
Applications reviewed regularly by the Endowments Committee (no specific deadline).
