ICRS Grants, Fellowships & Scholarships

The ICRS and its partners have joined forces by offering several Fellowship & Scholarship Programmes to the ICRS members. Applications are open only to young ICRS Members who are in good standing. The programme represents a serious commitment from ICRS and its partners to support highly motivated trainees and residents with basic science knowledge and clinical research skills. Together we build a strong network and push for innovation. We believe that research is the engine of development and that linking and educating passionate young professionals is the way to advance the field of orthoregeneration significantly. Applications should be submitted before the deadline of each programme. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
