#EFIC2023 Financial Aid

The European Pain Federation EFIC has limited funding to provide aid to applicants from low resource and currency restricted countries. The financial aid coverage varies and may include accommodation, possible help in costs towards travel and daily expenses.

As the European Pain Federation EFIC aims to encourage communication and collaboration at European level, applicants from European countries will be prioritized. However, applications from outside of Europe will also be considered. Candidates presenting a poster will be highly ranked. Those from developing countries will also be given preference, however all applications will be considered on their individual merit and reasons given. You will require support from your head of department.

Please note that you ​will need to attach the following to your application:

  • A clear copy of your ID, Passport or Driver’s License indicating your date of birth in English
  • ​A letter signed by the head of department on the department’s letterhead confirming your status

Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered. Financial support is conditional upon the recipient attending the Congress. This will be assessed. All bursary recipients are expected to attend the congress in full. We will request your attendance at a meeting onsite to ensure you complied with the terms of the financial aid. Only after this will any financial reimbursement due for travel be provided. No show – no bursary. Please also note that EFIC does not offer cash refunds and all refunds will be made via bank transfer.

Financial aid is now closed!

The second and final round of financial aid applications was closed on 30 April 2023; all applicants will be informed in due course.
