All eligible candidates who applied for bursaries for 2020, and who are still eligible, will be able to follow a streamlined application process for 2021.


There are a number of bursaries available for the IIC course to facilitate attendance at the meeting. These bursaries are open only to trainees in PID and students on the Oxford University Diploma in PID. The majority of the bursaries are funded by ESPID and are for ESPID members, there are also some funded by BPAIIG for BPAIIG members, and some funded by the IIC course itself. We especially welcome applications from trainees from 'resource limited countries' (as per ESPID's defimition, you can find a list here).

Applications for bursaries for IIC 2020 are now open. The deadline is 31 January 2020. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

Applicants will be notified about the outcome of their application in March 2020.

Please do not apply unless you are currently in a training post or a student on the Oxford University Diploma in PID.



All bursary applicants who submit their application by 31 January, whether they receive a bursary or not, will qualify for the early-bird discount on the balance of fees. Please DO NOT register and pay if you are applying for a bursary until you are notified of the outcome of your application. You are guaranteed the earlybird registration fee whatever the outcome of your bursary application.
