EVECCS Travel Grant

Travel Grant
The European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (EVECCS) promotes the development of veterinary emergency and critical care across Europe. In order to improve the accessibility of this specialty to colleagues, EVECCS has now developed an Annual Travel Grant for two of its members. Two travel grants will be offered annually: one for a veterinarian, and one for a nurse/technician.
Each winner of the travel grant will receive a sum of 1000€ to visit a European institution before the 1st of June 2019. The travel grant is dedicated to help cover expenses related to your visit (charged visit
fees, travel, accommodation…)

Young vets looking for an internship or a residency program, technicians or nurses interested to improve their skills, as well as experienced vets/technicians/nurses willing to improve their knowledge and/or acquire new techniques are warmly invited to apply.

Attached to this post, you will find a list of institutions and contact details of the local supervisors. Please carefully check the details for each institution, particularly the possible periods, durations, as well as required language skills. Please note that facilities may charge fees for the visit. Afterwards contact the local supervisor to make further inquiries and assess the feasibility of a visit. As soon as the applicant and local supervisor have come to an agreement, the application form must be filled in and signed by both. Applications are open until the 1st of June 2018 and must be signed and submitted to travel committee at travel-grant@eveccs.org.

The travel grant committee will evaluate all applications, considering the candidate’s profile, curriculum vitae, interest in ECC and capacity to communicate in language spoken at the visiting institution. The winner of the grant will be announced at the next EVECC congress in Venice. The winner will be noticed prior to the congress via mail and will be promoted on the EVECCS website and social media after the congress. At the
end of the visit, we will ask for a short evaluation to both the applicant and the local supervisor. The applicant will write a short report of their visit, for potential use on the EVECCS website, newsletter and/or EVECCS booth at congress(es), to be received by the 1st of June 2018 at the latest.
