The International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) and the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) are pleased to announce the winners of Traveling Scholarships to support their travel to the 13th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) in Prague, Czech Republic, May 30 – June 2, 2013.
Both organizations decided to join their grant application and selection process to increase the probability of selecting the best applicants from a varied geographical spread and with different backgrounds.
In total, 73 applications were received which meant that despite the increase in funds many extraordinary applicants had to be turned down. The committees had a difficult time selecting the final list of grantees and we hope that in the future we will be able to increase the funds even more to support many more applicants. Many thanks to all those who applied, for their interest and support.
