The deadline for Bursary Applications has NOW PASSSED.
In an effort to further encourage young investigators (under 45 years of age) to participate
in the 30th International Epilepsy Congress, travel bursaries were awarded to a number of
young applicants to assist with travel and/or registration and/or accommodation expenses.
Members of the Bursary Sub-Committee selected the successful applicants.
Results were made available in the first week of March 2013 and all were contacted by email.
If you have any queries in relation to your bursary application or abstract submissions please contact the congress secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org
*Applications for Bursaries will only be accepted by those who also submit an abstract*

1. Bursaries are reserved for those under 45 years of age (include a copy of your Passport with your submission to verify your date of birth).
