Travel bursaries

Every 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.

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 submissions under the Health Professionals (HPR) (other than physicians) or PARE/patients category.

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 need to be submitted via the electronic application system.


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 application 15 February 2020!
