Please note that it is necessary to submit all required documents for your course at the time you submit your VIREPA application. Though it is important to keep the application deadline in mind, do not submit your application until you are able to upload all required documents. When the application deadline has been reached, the Course Directors will review each application for quality and completeness. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application within 3-4 weeks after the application deadline.
1 a) Submission of a letter of recommendation from the bursary applicant’s current workplace or from the leadership of the local ILAE Chapter or Regional Commission stating the expected benefit to the epilepsy care and development in the bursary applicant’s community specific to the VIREPA course for which application is being made is required.
1 b) In case such evidence cannot be submitted, a personal letter of motivation is required outlining the benefit the bursary candidate expects for his/her daily practice and professional career specific to the VIREPA course for which application is being made.
Please note that this requirement is mandatory and is an important part of the decision-making process for the granting of any bursary. It is also important to note that dropping out of a course, or having limited participation in one, may impact future decisions about bursary eligibility.
