Travel Grants for ESMO Young Oncologists

Throughout the year we offer a limited number of travel grants for ESMO young oncologists to attend various educational meetings.

Preceptorship Courses

ESMO Preceptorship Courses are educational events on specific topics and/or cancer types and are led by experts in their field. They are designed to provide a specific learning experience and training for oncologists. While these courses are particularly suitable for young oncologists and for general oncologists wishing to update their knowledge, they are open to all ESMO members. The registration and accommodation is included at these events, and a travel grant is offered to successful applicants. There are preceptorship courses during autumn and spring, taking place in European cities and/or Singapore.

Application requirements: Complete the online form by the given deadline (include CV and a clinical study on 3-5 slides)

Preceptorship travel grants:  While all courses are open for applications from all ESMO members, the courses are primarily aimed at those living in Europe (when taking place in a European city) or Asia (when the venue is Singapore).

When applying, please bear in mind that the travel grant for a Preceptorship course is maximum € 600 (against receipts), no matter your place of residence, and that travelling to some countries may require that you obtain a visa.
