EWDA Workshop Fundraising Award: New Deadline!

Extension of application deadline for EWDA Workshop Fundrasing Award!

Keen to attend the EWDA 6th Student Workshop in March 2015? Help us raising funds for it and secure yourself a FREE spot at the workshop!

New deadline: Dec. 20, 2014

These are the rules for the award:

  • Every member of the EWDA student chapter can apply.
  • To be eligible you have to raise at least 400 €.
  • The funds can derive from a single or several sponsors.

Once you received the confirmation of a sponsor to contribute at least 400 € to the workshop, you will get a free spot at the EWDA 6th Student Workshop held from March 26th to 29th, 2015, at the conference centre of the Fondation Mérieux, in Veyrier-du-Lac, France.

Even if you have never done it before, just give it a go! It’s always worth gaining some experience in fund-raising. You might need it later for your own research project etc.

For example you can start contacting local/national pharmaceutical companies to ask for sponsoring. Sometimes pet food companies are interested as well. Before you start, let us know that you would like to give it a go and help raising funds! Please tell us, which companies etc. 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 ( for further information!
