Useful tips

Start Early: Check program websites for deadlines and requirements for the application process. 

Contact the program you are interested in, find out more if you have questions related to your possible application. 

Think about your career goals: Why a fellowship? Which of the possibilities are interesting and are helpful? How long can you be on leave from your current programme? Why would you be interested in neurology, what specialty are you really interested in, and want to learn more that is relevant for your future?

Draft a personal timeline: Create a timeline of when is the best time in your studies to submit the application and to take part in the fellowship.

Check your membership status: Apply for EAN membership (as student) if you are no member yet. 

Organise your application: Prepare your CV (EAN CV form), Student ID, necessary forms and documents (e.g. letters, see below) for the fellowship you are interested in. Use your university address rather than personal email, if possible.

Recommendation Letters: Obtain strong letters that are well-written and which inform the fellowship selection committee about your professional and personal skills, ideally stating already, why the selected type of fellowship is a good opportunity for you. 

Keep in Contact: if you have not received a note of reception for the fellowship documents, or heard anything in the given timeframe, you may check to see if your documents have arrived, or something is missing.
