Albert Renold Travel Fellowships enable scientists and clinicians to travel and stay at other institutions for a maximum of 3 months in order to learn specific techniques or clinical skills required for the advancement of their diabetes research project and not available at their home institution.

Main features

- Applications may be made by any paid-up member of EASD, currently either in a PhD programme or having received their highest degree (PhD, MD, DMD, DVM, or equivalent) no more than five (basic scientist) or seven years (clinician) before 1 January in the year the Fellowship is awarded. For clinicians holding more than one qualifying degree (e.g. MD PhD) or with a clinical specialist degree/board certification, the time since the first degree may not exceed ten years before 1 January in the year the Fellowship is awarded. Time periods spent on maternity/paternity leave, long-term illness or other exceptional circumstances will be taken into account, if clearly described (further documentation may be requested at the discretion of EFSD). Fellows may not hold a permanent appointment.

- Successful applicants must travel within 9 months of receipt of the Award. If this is not possible, special dispensation from this regulation must be sought.

- The funds must be transferred into a European institution.

- Awardees will be expected to provide a written report and confirmation of stay from the host institution on return to the home institution.




The duration of the stay cannot exceed 3 months.
