Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the prestigious APSC-Emirates scholarship for promising fellows in training in ASPC countries is now open for application.

1. Eligibility:

 APSC nationalities accepted/applying for training in an APSC endorsed training institution. Both applicant and training institution should be endorsed by the respective National Societies prior to granting the fellowship. The endorsement can be granted at point of application, if not already endorsed prior to application.

2. Application Process: 

The application may be made by the applicant directly, or through the National Society or training Institution. A concise curriculum vitae, training objectives, training institution and duration, a recommendation letter from the National Society and a short write-up by the applicant detailing how the training will help his community should be received by the APSC secretariat by May 7th, 2018 at

3.  Training should commence within a year of the award, failing which APSC reserves the right to withdraw the funding. In the event of a premature termination of training, the APSC has the right to request a refund of the training award pro-rated accordingly.
