Bursary application requirements

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.

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 (letter of recommendation OR personal letter of motivation) 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 are 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.
