ESC Research Grants

A category of grants awarded to medical graduates at any stage in their career but before obtaining a "permanent", "senior staff" or "consultant" post, or for science graduates with research experience up to Junior Investigator, Lecturer, Assistant Professorship or equivalent level, whose work has been, or is, related to cardiovascular research.

Application for ESC Grants are now available.

Applications for Research grants are now closed.

For more information:

Applicants must be under 36 at the day of application deadline.

Any citizen or permanent resident of a country, which is a regular ESC or ESC Affiliated member, can apply. Applicants who have not been ordinarily residents in such country throughout the three years preceding the application date are not eligible. Periods of residence mainly for full time education will not be accepted as ordinary residence for this purpose.

Medical graduates can apply at any stage of their career, provided they have already proved some research potential by publishing in medical journals. Science graduates should hold a PhD or DPhil degree or equivalent or must have submitted a thesis before the grant period commences.

ESC Research Grants are awarded for a period of twelve months.
