The EFNS congress offers up to 200 bursaries consisting of free registration to the EFNS congress and four nights hotel accommodation to European neurologists under the age of 35 who are not yet in a permanent position and whose abstract has been accepted. 20 of these bursaries will be awarded for papers on movement disorders through a grant funded jointly by the EFNS and the Movement Disorder Society - European Section (MDS-ES). The bursary applications for papers on movement disorders will be reviewed by MDS-ES and EFNS.
The EFNS is pleased to inform that it is also possible for young colleagues from EFNS Associate member societies (Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Syria) to apply for bursaries.
Applications must be accompanied by a copy of your passport showing your date of birth, as well as your abstract submission confirmation number.
This information should be sent either by e-mail (a scanned copy) to: email@example.com , or by fax to: +41 22 906 91 40, marked clearly to the attention of EFNS 2009 Congress Secretariat.
Applications for bursaries will only be considered if submitted by the time of abstract submission deadline. Extended deadline for submission of abstracts and applications for bursaries is March 29, 2009.
