The Journal of Comparative Pathology Educational Trust (JCPET) is pleased to announce the availability of travel bursaries (each valued at GBP500) for junior pathologists to enable them:

1. To attend and present (a poster or oral presentation) at a scientific conference (for example, but not restricted to, the joint congress of the European Society of Veterinary Pathology and European College of Veterinary Pathologists).

2. To make a short visit to another institution or laboratory for the purpose of learning a specific technique or skill not available in their own institution.

Eligible junior pathologists will be colleagues who are either:

• Currently undertaking training in anatomical pathology as part of a recognized residency programme at an accredited European institution

• Currently registered for a higher degree in a discipline related to anatomical pathology

Applications should be accompanied by a letter from the supervisor or institution to confirm training status.

In the case of attendance at a conference, applicants will be expected to submit (and have accepted) an abstract for poster or oral presentation to the Congress and a draft of this abstract must be submitted with the application.

Applications must be made on the form attached and submitted by e-mail (subject line: JCP Educational Trust Bursary Scheme) to Professor M. J. Day, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Comparative Pathology (Enable JavaScript to view this email address.).

Every six months, up to four bursaries will be made available.  Closing dates for applications will be 1st June and 1st December each year.

Applications will be considered by the Trustees and successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible after the closing date.

In the case of a bursary being awarded for attendance at the ESVP-ECVP Congress, the bursary cheque will be presented to the successful applicant at the conclusion of the JCPET Plenary Lecture to be held at the Congress.
