Andreas Katsambas 1 st Chairman, Honours and Awards Committee
The Academy offers several scholarships and grants with the aim of enriching networks and knowledge-sharing among future leaders in the specialty. Since 1999, the Honours and Awards Committee has gradually increased its involvement with this process, then to a larger extent in 2007 before assuming full responsibility in 2010 for awarding and administering all scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to elite young dermato-venereologists and associated scientists to facilitate attendance at EADV symposia and congresses. Applications are open to young dermato-venereolo- gists or resident/trainees under 35 years of age who have not previously received an EADV Scholarship and have adequate knowledge of the English Language.

John Stratigos Memorial Scholarship Named after the late distinguished colleague, founding member and former President Prof John Stratigos, this scholarship is awarded to one selected applicant from each Southern European & Mediterranean country. Imrich Sarkany Non-European Memorial Scholarship Named after the late distinguished colleague, founding member and former President Dr Imrich Sarkany, this award is made to a maximum of eight eligible recipients from non-European countries.
