Initiative for Improving Headache Practice, Research and Education in Developing Countries

The IHS Board of Trustees, together with the IHS Juniors Group, welcomes applications for the IHS developing countries project: Initiative for Improving Headache Practice, Research and Education in Developing Countries. This initiative addresses the need for essential and improved clinics, research and education about headaches and their treatment in these countries . The aim of the programme is to increase transnational mobility of young researchers living in developing countries (please see list) by providing grants for short, goal-directed stays in headache research centres and clinics.

The Short Stay Scholarships are offered to young researchers from countries listed in the World Bank listings as Lower-, Lower-middle and Upper-middle income, to fund visits to a major headache congress and a research institution or clinic in the same country (or region) as the congress. The duration of such visits should be a minimum of 4 weeks, and a maximum of six (6) weeks, immediately before, during and/or after the congress. The scholarships offer funding of up to € 6,000 to cover travel, congress registration and living expenses.

Scholars will need to identify the congress and mentor/host institution themselves. IHS will offer assistance if required. A list of potential sites is included on the IHS website.
