Please send completed application forms to Myfanwy Griffith putting the course title in the subject line. Once you have submitted your application you will be contacted to confirm whether you have been accepted onto the training event.
Segré Scholarships are made possible due to a generous donation from Foundation Segré and are open to employees of EAZA Members or Candidates for Membership. The aims of the Segré Scholarships are to promote professional training, and support motivated, committed zoo staff to further their skills development and aid the wider EAZA community.
Scholarships will cover:
~ Course fee
~ Cost of return airfare, or standard class train or bus travel, or car mileage at €0.19 per km to the course location (travel arrangements and
costs to be agreed before payment is made)
|Scholarship applicants are required to complete a scholarship application form and provide two letters of recommendation. One letter must be from your current manager and the other from someone else who knows you well and is linked to the work of zoos and aquariums.

Scholarship Application Form
Letter of Recomendation
If you are unsuccessful in your scholarship submission but wish to attend the course anyway, sending in a scholarship application form does not guarantee you a place. To guarantee your place you must submit a completed application form for the course and pay the course fee in full. If you then receive a Segré Scholarship the course fee will be refunded to you.
Submissions that are incomplete will not be considered. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that both letters of recommendation are submitted by the deadline. Submissions are reviewed by members of the EAZA Executive Committee and the EAZA Executive Office, with successful participants usually being notified a minimum of 4 weeks before the start of their course.
All scholarship submissions should be emailed to Myfanwy Griffith
If you or your organisation would like to offer a scholarship to EAZA Academy participants then please contact Myfanwy Griffith to discuss this further.
