Awards & Grants

ESCMID offers various grants and awards to support young and promising scientists as well as professionals residing in Low- or Lower-middle income countries (LMICs) to be able to attend the 34th ECCMID. It is important to support both the future leaders of our fields as well as those who may otherwise not be able to attend to promote the spread of scientific knowledge. You can read below about the opportunities available for the upcoming ECCMID.


Please note that it is not possible for a single presenting author to be awarded with more than one of the below grants in a single year.
