How do I apply?
Download an application form now!
All you will need to do is :

  • State when and where you plan to go
  • What you plan to do on your trip
  • And provide an estimate of costs for the trip

It will be worthwhile discussing your plans with other IPPS members to get some advice as to the best region to visit, time of year and if they can recommend possible contacts to achieve the objective of your trip.

When should I apply?
Any time, but well ahead of travel

If my application is successful, how do I make contact with IPPS members overseas?

Contact the IPPS Europe Mary Helliar International Travel Scholarship co-ordinator Peter MacDonald by emailing who will help you make the initial contacts with IPPS members in the Region you are visiting.

A condition of the award is to prepare a report of your study trip and you will also be invited to present a poster or paper at an annual European Region Conference.
