Application criteria

Each year the European Health Forum Gastein offers a limited number of scholarships. Scholars are invited to participate in the the EHFG conference, the tailored-made YFG programme and are introduce to the YFG Network.

Call for newcomer applications starts in March and is open for about two months. Each application is carefully evaluated. By the end of June the list with YFG scholars is announced.

Scholarship applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • citizenship of one of the 28 EU Member States or candidate countries or EFTA countries;
  • 35 years of age or under (on 02 October 2018);
  • proficiency in English (oral & written);
  • Master’s degree in a health-related subject;
  • relevant work experience of at least 2 years (full-time) in the field of health/public health (policy or research);
  • proof of current work in the field of public health (for public sector applicants) – proof of current work in a health role (for industry/private sector applicants).

By applying the applicant confirms his/her availability to undertake an active role in the YFG programme, before and during the EHFG conference. This is a pre-condition for being accepted. Activities may include participation in presentations, panel discussions, reporting on the event, contributing to the conference blog, conducting interviews etc.


The scholars have a busy schedule during the EHFG conference which includes participating in the general conference programme as well as attending specific Young Forum Gastein meetings and working groups.

Young Gasteiners are playing an increasingly important role both in the organisation of the conference and in increasing the visibility of the YFG initiative. 

Programme duration

The Young Forum Gastein programme at #EHFG2018 commences one day before the official start of the EHFG conference, on Tuesday 2 October 2018. Activities will take place up to and including the evening of Friday 5 October, with travel home on Saturday 6 October. Depending on flight availability some participants may need to arrive on Monday, 1 October 2018.

This year's Young Forum Gastein was made possible by funding from the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
