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.
Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like further information about supporting our scholarship programme.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the partners already supporting our educational scholarship programme!
