The EPNS is delighted to offer 20 bursaries.

Who can apply for a bursary? Applicants must be a member of the EPNS and have paid their 2017 annual subscription fee. Applicants should be a resident in paediatric neurology, neurology or paediatrics, or a young paediatric neurologist. Applicants must reside in a European country; this is taken as the region for which the European Office of WHO is responsible .Bursary applicants who wish to attend both training courses will be given priority over those who wish to attend one of the two courses.

What does the bursary cover? The bursary will fully cover both the training course fees, accommodation in a shared room for 3 nights in case of single course, for 5 nights in case of both courses and all meals, including breakfast.

What does the bursary not cover? The bursary will not cover any other costs, including travel costs. The bursary will not cover the cost of staying in a single room, but if the successful bursary participant would prefer a single room, they can cover this cost themselves. The single supplement is 14 Euros per person per night.

How do I apply for a bursary? If you would like to apply for a bursary, please download the application from and send it by email to EPNS

Who will make the decision about the bursary applications?  The Chair of EPNS Education & Training Committee will review the applications and make the final decision.
