Travel bursaries

Each year, EULAR awards a number of travel bursaries to the first presenting author of an abstract accepted for oral or poster presentation at the annual EULAR Congress.

The online application system for travel bursaries has been closed now.

A travel bursary is to facilitate attendance at the EULAR Congress and includes :

  • free, full registration for the congress
  • three nights hotel accommodation (single use), in the travel bursary hotel(s)
  • a cash amount of EUR 350 for travel and living expenses

The age limit to apply for a scientific travel bursary is 40 years. There is no age limit for Health Professionals (HPR) (other than physicians) and patients.

Individuals that receive full or partial sponsorship from industry sources are not eligible for EULAR Travel Bursaries.

The cash amount of the travel bursary will be fully paid on-site at the congress only, and only to the eligible person. No pre- and post-payments will be made in any case.

Applications should be submitted via the electronic application system.

Important information

Please apply for a travel bursary as soon as you have submitted your abstract but note that this is a separate process and requires a separate application.

Deadline for travel bursary application was: 28 February 2018.
