Travelling Fellowships

Travelling Fellowship

The ESGO Travelling Fellowship provides financial support for gynae oncologists who have arranged a fellowship at an ESGO-accredited training centre that is outside their country of origin or residence.

The Fellowship is offered exclusively to members of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO). The objective of this initiative is to enhance patient care by supporting training, research, and the exchange of technologies across member nations.

The amount of financial support provided through the Travelling Fellowship program varies based on the duration of the fellowship (from one to two months), and the availability of funds.

The primary aim of the Travelling Fellowship is to facilitate links and exchanges within the gynaecological oncology community, sharing of knowledge and trans-European mobility.
