The objective of each grant is to cover a major part of a fellow’s travel and living expenses during the visit. Accepted fellows receive a grant to visit one of the pre-defined and approved European host centers. The host centers vary according to the fellowship. The grant amount is EUR 2,000 per month per fellow. If the accepted fellow cancels his/her fellowship before or during the visit for any reason, it is the fellow’s responsibility to immediately notify the EFORT Foundation and the host center about the cancellation.
