Geoff Hall Scholarship 2021 launched

EMWA offers two scholarships in memory of one of the founding fathers of EMWA, Geoff Hall, who sadly passed away in 2010. Geoff was not only a founding member of EMWA, but was also a past president, wrote the original EMWA constitution, was an extremely experienced workshop leader, and a stalwart of the social scene. Geoff felt very strongly that the future of EMWA lies with younger members joining and moving through the organisation to become workshop leaders and members of the EMWA committees, and so the scholarships are an ideal way to honour Geoff and his huge contribution to EMWA.


Up to two scholarships are available.

The essay title for 2021 is ‘Ethics in Medical Writing’.  

The submission deadline for entries is 30 September 2021.

Eligible applicants must be new medical writers: that is, they intend to enter the profession or have been employed for no longer than one year as a professional medical writer, including freelance work. They need not be current members of EMWA.

You can read all of the entry requirements on the Geoff Hall Scholarship page.
