Dear EWDA Student Chapter members,
We are pleased announce the Fundraising Award. Would you like to attend the 7th EWDA Student Workshop “Living and surviving the interface” for FREE? Help us raise funds and secure a FREE spot at the workshop!
To be eligible, you have to:
- Be a member of the EWDA student chapter (https://ewdastudent.wordpress.com/membership/)
- Raise at least €400 (the funds can derive from a single or multiple sponsors).
The participant with the most original fundraising idea will get a free spot at the EWDA 7th Student Workshop held in April, 2017, at the conference centre of the Foundation Mérieux in Veyrier-du-Lac, France. Other participants will be awarded one year of free EWDA Student Chapter membership.
No experience with fundraising? Just give it a go! You might need it later for your own research project and this is a great way to gain experience. You can start contacting local/national pharmaceutical companies to ask for sponsoring. Sometimes pet food companies are interested as well. Don’t hesitate to also contact professionals outside the field of animal health as the next topic is truly transdisciplinary. You can sollicitate any company that plays a role in relation with the topic of the next workshop – you would be surprised by how unexpected some answers can be!
Before you start, please:
- let us know that you would like to give it a go and help raising funds!
- tell us which organisations you plan to contact.
We will provide you with our official sponsor invitation letter to be used for addressing potential sponsors. We will also give you further advice how to get started. If you’ve got additional ideas whom to ask for sponsoring like foundations, universities, research institutions, go ahead! There are no limits set to your creativity! Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information!

We look forward to hearing from you!
The EWDA Student Chapter Board
