Educational scholarship programme for low- and middle-income country (LMIC) early career researchers

ECTMIH 2023’s three-and-a-half-day scientific programme offers tropical medicine and global health investigators a most valuable opportunity to showcase their research on an international stage, get feedback and raise their professional profile. ECTMIH 2023 is committed to principles of equity, and as such actively seeks to support the participation of LMIC-based early career researchers through its scholarship programme.

Scholarships will be available up to the value of €2,000 to cover travel and attendance costs for PhD researchers or recent PhD graduates (<3 years) from LMICs who have had an abstract accepted or who are involved in the delivery of an organized session can apply for travel and attendance support through this programme. A limited number of scholarships will also be available for Netherland-based refugees with a (bio)medical or public health background. 

The active involvement and engagement of LMIC researchers is integral to our vision for ECTMIH 2023 and will be key to our success in creating a richly diverse space for discussion, debate and exchange of ideas – as well as facilitating networking opportunities and the forging of vital partnerships for future LMIC scientific leadership. We are therefore extremely keen to offer as many scholarships as possible and call on our partners to support this critical area of our work.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the partners already supporting our educational scholarship programme!

Girard de Milet van Coehoorn Foundation 

In 1975 the University Medical Center Utrecht received money from the estate of Ms M.E.M. Baroness de Girard de Mielet van Coehoorn. Her wish was that the estate would benefit doctors who work at UMC Utrecht, and the Girard de Mielet van Coehoorn Foundation was established with this purpose in 1977. 

In 2023 the Foundation supported researchers from low- and middle income countries for the first time through a partnership with the ECTMIH scholarship fund.

ECTMIH2023 is co-organised by University Medical Center Utrecht, Universiteitsweg 100, 3584 CG Utrecht, Netherlands
