Bursary Awards

SVEPM offers up to three bursary awards to eligible candidates. The bursary covers conference registration and accommodation. Should you wish to apply, you need to send the application form (DOCX, 38 kB)  to the Honorary Secretary no later than 15 December. Your application will be evaluated by two members of the Committee and you will be notified of their decision by 15 January.

The ideal candidates will be:

  • Applicants based in European or Mediterranean countries that are not usually well represented at the conference, followed by those based in non-European countries where funding may be difficult to secure;
  • Applicants who are training towards a higher degree (e.g. Masters, Doctorate, Residency), followed by those newly employed in the veterinary epidemiology and public health fields;
  • Applicants who are SVEPM members (but non-members can also apply!)
  • Applicants who have not previously been awarded an SVEPM bursary

Bursary recipients must register for the conference and provide proof of self-financed travel arrangements no later than January 31st.

Furthermore, they must bring a poster (if they are not giving an oral presentation) to the SVEPM meeting and acknowledge SVEPM for the award on the poster/presentation. If they do not have a scientific study to present, they can create a poster describing a topic of interest in their home country, such as epidemiology training for veterinarians, a veterinary public health issue or likewise.
