This year the WFSA Scientific Committee will start a programme of research scholarships. These grants will be provided to young researchers from less affluent countries to help them to travel to a foreign country to study and learn in a research programme. The recipient will have to develop a research project in a Department or a Laboratory of Anaesthesiology for a period of six months to one year, with a final goal of publishing an original paper in an indexed journal. This could form part of an advanced diploma or a PhD thesis.

Three grants of 00 US each will be awarded for the first year. This sum will serve mainly for travel and food. Hosting Departments or Laboratories are asked to provide accommodation during the scholarship.

This call is both for trainees and for Departments and Laboratories who would be willing to host a young researcher.

The deadline for application is October 1st 2011.

3 copies of the application must be submitted to the WFSA Scientific Committee Chairman:

Professor Philippe SCHERPEREEL

Departement d’Anesthesie Reanimation

Hôpital Claude Huriez

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Lille


The applications will be submitted to 2 reviewers, WFSA Scientific Committee members, from geographical areas different to the candidate. They will report their conclusions to the Committee which will decide on the final selection. After informing the WFSA Executive Committee, the results will be communicated to the candidates before December 31, 2011. The grants will be officially awarded during the WFSA General Assembly during the next World Congress of Anaesthesiology in Buenos Aires on March 25-30, 2012.
