Aim: To help postgraduate students, and others, attend ASAB conferences.
Eligibility: Applicants must be ASAB members or have applied for membership. They must either be registered at the time of application for a higher degree, or be without access to other sources of funding for conference attendance (e.g. undergraduates, unwaged postdocs). Presentation of a paper at the conference is not a condition of eligibility. Priority may be given to first-time applicants and those working in the area of the conference.
Award: Awards will provide a contribution towards the cost of accommodation and meals at the conference and the cost of travel to and from the conference, up to a maximum grant of £400.
Application date: Applications should be received by 1st March for the Easter meeting, 1st July for the Summer meeting and 1st November for the Winter meeting.
Application format: Applicants should download the application form here. Applications should be saved using the file name surnameAC.doc and submitted to the Secretary of the Grants Committee as an email attachment.
Decisions will be made shortly after the closing date.
Successful applicants will receive their funding at the conference in question and should bring all required receipts; in which case completion of a formal report form will not be required.
