Application Process

Applications will open in May, 2014.

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.

Bursary applicants:

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.

Only one ILAE bursary per year per person is possible. Bursaries will be partial bursaries involving partial payment. Partial bursaries will only be available for participants living in countries with low and lower middle income. See categories according to the statistics of the World Bank here.

Michael Foundation Support for European Applicants Only:
European applicants who cannot afford the full registration fee may apply for support by the Michael Foundation, Germany. The Foundation is willing to cover half the registration fee for a limited number of participants. If you are interested, please contact the Michael Foundation () at the same time and in parallel to your course application. The Michael Foundation support is only given on the condition that the course application is accepted.
