These scholarships made on the recommendation of the Endowment Committee are designed to encourage Trainee Members of EACMFS (and 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. Applications should be made to the Secretary General on the standard application form available from the Secretariat and also on the EACMFS website www.eacmfs.org (No deadline). 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.
