ESC Congress Educational Grants

ESC Congress 2020


The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) supports the future of cardiovascular medicine. Each year the ESC provides €2 million in grants, fellowships, and scholarships.

The aim of these grants is to encourage research and to support the development of professional careers towards the fight against cardiovascular disease.


Recognising that the current regulatory environment is likely to impact the direct sponsorship of clinicians and scientists to congresses, the European Society of Cardiology is offering 300 Educational Grants for ESC Congress 2020 in Amsterdam.

Educational Grants are offered to healthcare professionals, clinicians and researchers who have limited access to funding or difficulties to obtain financial assistance in order to attend the Congress.

Successful applicants will receive €850 as a contribution towards the costs of travel and accommodation and will also benefit from a free congress registration.

There is no strict age limit, the applicant is required to complete all mandatory fields and upload a CV and a copy of an identity document.



Applications are now closed

Results notification: May 2020
