WONCA Europe Scholarship

WONCA Europe Scholarship

The purpose is to scout and stimulate future international leaders of Family Medicine/General Practice. The WONCA Europe Scholarship will be for minimum 2 to maximum 4 years and will not be limited to attending the WONCA Europe/World Congress but employs other activities which enable the growth of participants both on the personal and professional levels

Attending a meeting of one of our Networks, participating in a 360 exchange, visiting a department of Family Medicine, or the WHO can be part of the Scholarship. Furthermore, a review of a health related policy document could be included, as well as joint activity with the WONCA World WHO Liaison person. The candidate should propose a coherent program.

For a 4-year period, a sum of € 8000 per scholar is available (i.e. € 2000 per scholar per year). Stepwise introduction with a maximum of four scholars would mean a maximum cost of € 8000 per year to the budget of WONCA Europe.

Each scholar receives a scholarship of € 2000 per year, after the scholarship, committee evaluates the progress of the scholar and approves the planned expenses. The scholar does not need to claim for the expenses.
