Scope of the Scholarship

Poster Scholarships

Five scholarships are awarded every year in order to foster and encourage training in Plastic Surgery across Europe. These Scholarships provide a one or three month experience to be spent in a European department of plastic surgery, or in a centre run by a EURAPS active member, included in the list of Institutions.

Eligibility

Candidates must be European citizens (Eastern European Countries included) and have obtained the specialty in Plastic Surgery (or Board). The maximum age is 37 years. Evidence that candidates have not had their 38th birthday must be submitted (photocopy of passport).

Application

The following documents must be sent to office@euraps.org before December 1st, each year:

1. Letter written by the candidate indicating the purpose of his/her visit and the Department(s) where he/she wishes to spend the Scholarship
2. C.V. + proof of thesis (ISBN-code, if available)
3. Letter of recommendation from the Sponsor (EURAPS Full Member) illustrating the choice of candidate

Selection

A four-Member EURAPS Committee, appointed by the General Assembly, will consider and select the most worthy applications.

Conditions

The scholarships must be used up before the end of the following year, and must be spent in a European department of plastic surgery, or in a centre run by a EURAPS active member, included in the list of Institutions.

There will be one-month and three-month scholarships available. The amount is €1.500 for the one-month scholarships and €3.500 for the three-month scholarships. The scholarships will be paid in two distinct phases: half before the commencement of the scholarship and the other half upon receipt of a report (2.000 words approximately) written by the host of the Institute to the EURAPS Secretary General at the end of the visit and considered satisfactory. In the case of negative report, the second part of the scholarship will not be paid. Notification of the winners will be sent to Sponsors and Candidate before March 15th of the following year.

The EURAPS Secretary General will write to the head of the Institute(s) to be visited, recommending the successful applicant(s).

Supervision

Recipient(s) of the EURAPS Scholarship will be supervised by the head of the Institute who will prepare a confidential report about the candidate’s attendance and interest on the Institute’s activity. The report will be sent to the Secretary General of EURAPS at the completion of the Scholarship. A copy of this report will be forwarded to the recipient’s sponsor.
