To promote the exchange of expertise and stimulate scientific merit a number of grants have been created in close collaboration and with the support of major pharmaceutical companies.

One of the main goals of the grants is to facilitate European individuals to acquire skills, techniques as well as knowledge by visiting or working with colleagues in other European or foreign transplant centres. In this respect, ESOT wants to support the learning curve of the individual recipient of a grant and at the same time enhance the development of activities in the field of transplantation in the home and/or host institution after his/her return.

3 types of Grants are now available:

ESOT Educational Scholarship20 scholarships of EUR 1.000 each

ESOT Study Scholarship - 10 scholarships of EUR 2.000 each

ESOT Transplant Fellowship - 2 grants of EUR 55.000 each.

ESOT Grants are open only to ESOT members residents/working in Europe. You must be a full member of ESOT to apply for a grant. More information on ESOT Membership can be found in the relevant membership section on the website.

Application platforms became visible starting August 15th, 2019 and closed on October 15th, 2019.
