IBSA Foundation provides financial support for awards and special projects that are consistent with its mission. This includes scholarships, which are a concrete and direct way to promote scientific research in specific fields of medical discipline: Dermatology, Endocrinology, Fertility/Urology, Pain Medicine/Orthopedics/Rheumatology.

Each year the Foundation awards 4 scholarships, each for € 30,000, to young researchers under the age of 40, from Universities and Institutes from any part of the world, who have stood out for their skills and who are carrying out particularly relevant projects in these specific areas of research.

We believe it is vitally important to value the work and dedication of young and brilliant scientists, and we support them with conviction, investing in their enthusiasm and talent, which will lead them to be the leaders of research in the future.
