ELS encourages its members to apply for grants
The grants are intended to encourage international exchange within ELS members. There are three scales of grants available, called Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Bronze grants are intended for Junior members. Students or young scientists planning a short-term visit in a different institution for the purpose of learning new techniques/methods relevant to laryngology can be supported for the amount of € 750.
Silver grants are intended for all members. Qualified young researchers or clinicians who want to acquire a particular skill or technique in another European center receive € 1.500 per month for a maximum of three months.
Gold grants are intended for all members over 40 years and/or tenured position. Support for a clinical/translational research project for one year which may be executed at home or in a host institution. The amount is € 50.000.
The specific conditions of each group can be obtained from Elisabeth Sjögren (General Secretary of the ELS) on E.V.Sjogren@lumc.nl.
