Society Conference Grants to support member attendance at Annual Conference 2020: deadline extended

16 January 2020

Applications for the Society Conference Grant to support members and delegates attending the Annual Conference 2020 are now open, and have been extended until 22 January 2020. Members are invited to apply for funding for travel and accommodation or caring costs.

To support early career researchers to present their work, the Society offers Conference Grants to Full Concessionary and Postgraduate members who have had their abstracts accepted. Funds of up to £250 are available for poster and talk presenters alike, to support registration, travel and accommodation costs for Annual Conference 2020. This grant is also available to members working as technicians, and retired members who would like to support early career delegates.

An additional £500 is available to support the attendance of members requiring caring costs and who would otherwise find attending the Conference difficult. This includes members returning from maternity or paternity leave, those requiring childcare or a carer to attend with them or those with any other similar barrier to attendance.

Applications for the Society Conference Grants will close on 22 January 2020. To find out more about this grant please see the grants area of the website.
