BSG/MSD Bursaries for Travel to UEGW 2014

The BSG Education Committee invites BSG members (including scientists, trainees and consultants in the first 5 years of their career in any area of gastroenterology) to apply for 10 travel bursaries. Each bursary of up to £800 is funded by MSD and is intended to reimburse the costs of registration, travel and/or accommodation for attendance at UEGW 22 in Vienna, Austria, 18-22 October 2014, but no other costs.

The BSG is solely responsible for all aspects of administering the BSG/MSD Travel Bursary Scheme, including Education Committee assessment of applications and selection of recipients. Additional criteria: presentation of research paper (oral or poster at UEGW) and/or specific purpose of attending UEGW ie workshop or clinical presentation which is not supported by other funding.

The names of successful applicants will be supplied by the BSG to MSD upon selection. Recipients will be invited by MSD to an awards dinner during UEGW. Recipients must provide feedback on the bursary scheme after the conference. MSD confirms that the funding is not conditional on, or provided in the expectation of, the prescription, supply, administration or recommendation of any MSD product.
