Educational Sponsorship

Educational Grants

The IFSSH Committee for Educational Sponsorship (CES), along with the Executive Committee, welcomes applications for grants and the IFSSH Harold Kleinert Visiting Professorship.

The IFSSH is pleased to continually provide educational support to a wide range of projects and programmes. Examples include the sponsorship of surgeons to attend triennial IFSSH congresses, seed funding for regional courses, provision of funding to national meetings to allow gratis (or reduced) registration for surgeons from low and middle income areas, assistance with outreach programmes, and financial support for hand surgery projects (e.g. IT platforms that allow the distribution of education; workshops in Africa).

Reports of the sponsored projects can be found on the IFSSH website (www.ifssh.info/ifssh-sponsored-educational-projects) and in the Ezine (www.ifssh.info/ezine)

To apply for educational bursaries and grants, please follow the IFSSH Educational Sponsorship Guidelines. Any educational proposal related to hand surgery may be considered as long as it originates from or is endorsed by an IFSSH member society. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. The CES has simplified the method of application and acceptance, with CES recommended grants being approved directly by the Executive Committee. This will make the process much faster and allow more projects to receive timely funding.

To apply specifically for the IFSSH Harold Kleinert Visiting Professorship please follow the application guidelines:IFSSH Harold Kleinert Visiting Professorship.
