Are you based in Europe and carrying out research or working with patients with Ewing sarcoma? Would you like the opportunity to work in another lab or hospital anywhere in the world?

The EURO EWING Consortium (EEC) is running a call for applications for one or more travel scholarships. The call is open to researchers and health professionals working in Europe on Ewing sarcoma and can be used at any laboratory or hospital in the world. The funding (£4100) has been generously donated by the Associazione Paola per i tumori muscolo-scheletrici charity, through Ornella Gonzato, an EEC patient expert.

If you would like to apply, please see below for more information. The deadline for applications is 31 October 2017 and all visits must be completed by 1 July 2018.

The total funding is £4108.80 (approximately €4,600.00) and up to two travel scholarships will be awarded to enable those working in the field of ES to learn new techniques or gain clinical experience.


Applications are invited from (i) clinicians in training positions; (ii) non-tenure researchers (including PhD students) and (iii) allied health professionals e.g. nurses or physiotherapists, at any point in their career

Application process

Applicants will need to submit a proposal that outlines the purpose of their visit. The following will also be required:

1.A letter/ email from the institution to be visited, confirming their support and outlining what they expect to be achieved

2.A letter/ email of support from the institution at which the applicant is currently based


The visit must be completed by 1 July 2018 and a report submitted by 31 August 2018.

Use of award

The award can be used to support a visit to any relevant institution in the world and can only be used for travel/ accommodation costs and not consumables. Applicants will need to make their own travel arrangements and then claim back costs from the EEC.


The successful applicants will be required to write a report on how they have benefited from the experience and how this will further ES research/ treatment in their country. This will be posted on the EEC website. They will also be encouraged to give a presentation at the following EEC meeting.


The judging panel will be made up of the EEC work package leaders and the EEC coordination team. If a member of the panel is conflicted (i.e. works at the institution from where the applicant is based or where the applicant is wishing to visit) they will not provide a score for that applicant.
