EBTA conference scholarship
We kindly inform you about a possibility to obtain scholarships for these who are in difficult situation and want to come to the conference. This was decided by the Board before the Bad Soden conference that we will support in this way not only EBTA members, but also these who want to join the conference, preferably also join EBTA , but for sure will fulfill the condition of writing their report from the conference and wish to popularize SFBT in their setting.
Everyone interested is supposed to contact conference organizers directly:
