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 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 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!
