Research Travel Scholarships (max. € 1000)
(Two scholarships per year)
Young members of the EMDS (PhD students, MD students or postdocs below the age of 35 years), who intend to visit a foreign laboratory for a short period of time (e.g. in order to learn a certain technique or to perform research in a collaborative research project) can apply for Research Travel Awards. Applications are send to the president of the EMDS at least three month in advance and should include a letter (max. one page) detailing the aim of travel, CV, list of publications, a summary of the presumptive costs, a letter of recommendation, a confirmation of guest laboratory, and a membership application (for non-members only). There will be a case-by-case decision by the EMDS Council, based upon the CV, the scientific quality of the proposal, and financial needs of the applicant. Awardees are required to provide a short report after their trip.
