For each annual meeting, SIOP provides scholarships to nurses who have insufficient resources to participate and to travel to the meeting. Successful candidates will receive financial support towards their travel and accommodation costs up to EUR 1500 (does not apply to virtual congress) and free registration to the annual meeting. Additionally, the SIOP board has decided to award all scholarship winners with a free SIOP membership with the wish that you will continue to be an active member.

Depending on the global situation in 2022 due to the pandemic, we will consider add. costs for attendees (i.e. testing etc.).
