EUROTOX 2021 Bursaries

Due to the change of the congress format from on-site to virtual, there will be no travel bursaries this year. However, the organisers will offer bursaries in the form of a waiver of the congrss fee. Interest in such a bursary can be expressed during the abstract submission. Bursaries will be available especially for individuals from low and lower-middle income economies. Online registration and abstract submission is required first and an application for a bursary can only be made during the abstract submission process.

  • must submit an abstract for the congress within the given deadline
  • must commit for presentation of the abstract if accepted for a bursary.

Bursaries will be offered as follows:

  • registration fee will be covered fully by the Congress Organizers


  • will only be made upon submission of all required documents
  • refund will only be made if there is proof of logging into the virtual platform on at least three congress days
