National Scholar Award

This award is designed to identify and nurture promising investigators at a junior level, encouraging early career researchers to work towards the more senior Rising Stars Award.

The National Scholar Award is based on National Society affiliation. Among all abstracts accepted for presentation, the highest scoring abstracts per country are chosen.

We consider abstract presenters 35 years of age or younger.

National Scholar awardees are:

  • Highlighted in the online programme of UEG Week
  • Invited to participate in the Young GI Network activities at UEG Week such as the mentoring programme or the networking event “Let’s meet!”
  • Invited to attend a reception with UEG leadership and other awardees in the Young GI Network Lounge
