The European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees provides bursaries to support the Forum attendance of participants from European countries who would otherwise find it financially difficult to attend.
Bursaries include partial or full travel funds and accommodation expenses up to a maximum of EUR 500. Bursaries may also include a waiving of the delegate fee. Usually, only one bursary is given per country in order to ensure maximum representation. Preference will be given to applicants from countries that either have not attended the forum yet or whose national organizations are in the process of becoming full members. Only European countries from World Bank Groups B, C or D are eligible to receive an EFPT travel bursary. Applicants from World Bank A countries can be granted waiving or partial waiving of their delegate fee, if sufficient funds are available to support this.
The travel bursary to this 27th EFPT Forum will include free accommodation. All travel bursary recipients will have to make their own travel arrangements and claim the reimbursement for these expenses from the EFPT Treasurer after the Forum. The reimbursement will be possible only with the original travel tickets or invoices.
The EFPT Board of Directors will decide upon allocation of the bursaries based on the applicants’ needs and how their objectives align with EFPT. This decision will be made within a month from the application deadline.
The application letter must contain the name and contact details of the applicant, the country of origin, the name of the national trainee organization (if one already exists) and a short description of why the bursary is required of no more than 100 words. If there is a national trainee association in the applicant’s country, they should also include a confirmation from this association that they are the official delegate(s) from that country.
All applicants will be informed of the receipt of the bursaries by the EFPT President or Secretary General immediately after the decision has been made.
