ESMO 2017: Travel Grants for Patient Advocates

We are delighted to be offering a limited number of travel grants to enable European Patient Advocates to attend the ESMO 2017 Patient Advocacy Track in Madrid.

Travel grant recipients will be selected by the ESMO Patient Advocacy Working Group who will evaluate the individual applications and allocate the grants accordingly.

How to apply

To apply for a grant, please send your CV and a letter of motivation, proving that part of your time is dedicated to cancer advocacy. All applicants should be proficient in English.

Please send your application by e-mail to: with the subject line: ESMO Advocacy 2017 – travel grant – your name

Application deadline

The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 May 2017. Successful applicants will be notified in the first half of June 2017.

Additional requests received after the deadline, will be kept in a waiting list and processed at a later stage, based on the amount of financial support still available.

Each grant will reimburse travel and accomodation costs up to a maximum of 800 EUR. Reimbursements will be made after the congress, and upon receipt of original travel and accommodation bills/invoices.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we look forward to welcoming a large number of patient advocates from across Europe!
