IPWSO 2018 Travel Fellowship Application


IPWSO 2018 Travel Fellowship Application             

In order to share knowledge about Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) around the world IPWSO is delighted to offer a travel fellowship to a person who wishes to attend a PWS conference outside of her/his own country in 2018.

The expectation of the fellowship is that the successful applicant/s will use the knowledge gained at the conference to help people with PWS in her/his country.

 The applicant/s must be willing, if successful, to be publicly identified by IPWSO as having received a fellowship (e.g. on the IPWSO website and in its annual report). 

The applicant/s must also be willing to prepare a brief report (which IPWSO may make public) on her/his experience at the conference within 6 months of the end of the conference.

The maximum value of the fellowship is US$2,500.  This may be awarded to a single candidate or divided amongst candidates.

Priority will be given to applicants who have previously supported people with PWS in their countries and demonstrate a willingness to continue to support others. Priority will also be given to candidates who come from countries in which large PWS conferences do not currently take place and where there is little awareness of PWS.

  • The  closing date for the receipt of applications is 30 March 2018.  The successful applicant/s will be chosen by the IPWSO board whose decision will be final. 

  • The successful applicant/s will be informed by 30 April 2018.

To apply please provide the information requested on the second page found separately here by email to IPWSO

All applications must be in English and amounts stated in US$.
