Travel bursaries

The online bursary application is open from 1 October 2018 until 31 March 2019.

Every year EULAR awards a number of travel bursaries to presenting authors of abstracts accepted for oral or poster presentation / poster tour at the annual EULAR Congress.

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

  • free full registration
  • 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 who receive full or partial financial support 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 individual. No pre- and postpayments 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 to be made!

Deadline for travel bursary applications is 31 March 2019!
