EFMI Bursaries


  1. The bursaries’ aim is to encourage young and/or financially challenged colleagues to participate in EFMI’s conferences.
  2. Bursaries will cover ONLY the conference fee. The scholars will cover travel costs, out-of-pocket expenses, and other expenses.
  3. Preferably, individuals belonging to one of the EFMI national associations wishing to take part in an EFMI conference are entitled to apply for a bursary.
  4. The EFMI Council will appoint a four-member committee (Bursary Committee) to evaluate and judge all applications.
  5. The application for the candidate should be sent by email to the chairperson of the Bursary Committee.
  6. The deadline for submitting applications is three months before the conference opens.
