Education Scholarships 2020

The EMEAC- IFCN is pleased to announce the availability of 10 education scholarships of up to €2,500 each that will be awarded to young clinical neurophysiologists to advance their training in clinical neurophysiology. Candidates must contact the education mentor themselves and obtain permission from the host department for the scholarship.

These scholarships will be split between applicants from economically disadvantaged and developed countries.

EMEAC-IFCN is keen to promote education and training. From its recent discussions on this, one area identified is a difficulty some trainees find in obtaining training in some areas within some host departments. The present scholarships are to support movement of trainees between departments within the EMEA Chapter to address these deficits. The duration of support is expected to be 6 weeks, but could be shorter, (when the financial support will be reduced proportionately, or longer (when applicants would need to secure their own additional funding). They are, in the first instance, a one-off initiative.
