Apply for a Congress bursary now!

Thursday, 2 July 2015

We are really pleased to announce that the bursary process for the 7th Global Patients Congress, to be held in London, 9-11 April 2016, is now live!


The over-arching theme for the upcoming Congress is ‘For Patients’ Organizations, By Patients’ Organizations’. Sessions will focus on how to extend the reach, raise the effectiveness and maximise the impact of patients’ organizations at the local, national and global level.

How to apply

IAPO is committed to broadening the participation of patients’ organizations worldwide at the Global Patients Congress. The bursary scheme is designed to assist with the attendance of a representative of an IAPO member organization that would otherwise not be represented at the Congress due to cost. Applicants will be assessed on a points basis, with consideration given to their contribution to the development of the Congress through the open call, Congress Advisory Committee, or in other ways. 

Apply here!
