EASL Young Investigator bursaries
EASL supports Young Investigators by helping them to attend the EASL monothematic conference on “Striving towards the elimination of HCV infection“.
To do so, EASL offers two types of bursaries to the presenting authors only of the best accepted abstracts who are aged 35 or under and/or are still in training. Application for a bursary is available to anyone fulfilling the above criteria, without geographical restrictions!
Up to 50 bursaries of EUR 650.00 each will be attributed to the presenting author of the best scored abstracts. In addition, the registration fees to the EASL monothematic conference will be waived.
Up to 50 presenting authors of the remaining best accepted abstracts answering the same criteria as mentioned above will have their registration fees waived.
All bursary recipients will receive one year’s free membership to EASL!
Bursary applications can only be made during the online abstract submission process: before submitting your abstract, please click the appropriate box, when prompted, on the online form indicating your wish to be considered for the bursary.
The name of the presenting author MUST match the name of the applicant.
Requests to be considered as a bursary applicant after the abstract submission deadline will not be taken into account.
