Grants

Educational travel grant

The Educational travel grant allows the applicant, over a short period of time, to look at a particular technique or research project in a European institution. A special committee of the Society will assess each application in a simple manner and the member of Council for the country of the applicant will be asked to confirm the applicant’s standing.

The applicant must be European, a trainee member or a full member aged no more than 40 years at the 31st December of the preceding year.

Applications deadline: 1st August 2016.

Application should cover applicant only. The Society does not support the additional travel cost of family.

Research grant

The ESVS Research Grant facilitates research projects conducted by young European vascular surgeons. The amount of each grant will be limited in order to allow as many grants as possible to be approved and to help the maximum number of young surgeons. Allocation of the grants will be decided ultimately by the Scientific Committee set up to consider the merits of each application.

The results of the work for which the grant is given must be submitted for publication in the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, previous submissions for publications in other media will not be accepted. A letter confirming this intent must be part of the grant application.

The applicant must be European, a trainee member or a full member and aged no more than 40 years.

Application deadline: 1st August 2016

Application should cover applicant only. The Society does not support the additional travel cost of family.
