At the 2018 Swansea ASM, the board decided to make a regular award to RA-UK members to attend the following courses:
1) One full RA-UK member to attend the ESRA Instructors Course which usually runs in June each year (£500 to support costs/travel).
2) One trainee RA-UK member to attend the ESRA Trainee and Resident Workshop each year (£500 to support costs/travel).
Please make submissions for the 2019 courses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a paragraph in your email stating why you would like to attend the course, and what your expected learning outcomes would be. Deadline for these applications is 8 weeks prior to the course start date, the recipients of the award will be advised by email then to allow time for study leave/travel arrangements to be made.
Details of the courses can be found here,
We are also providing an annual travel grant for any RA-UK member attending either ESRA or ASRA to present scientific work.
The award is discretionary based on merit. Application to be made by email to email@example.com, submitted abstract and proof of meeting acceptance to be sent with application, higher priority will be given to those making an oral presentation.
In the event that the RA-UK award winner wins further a meeting travel award, the RA-UK grant will be awarded to the second choice applicant (or will defer to the next meeting). The £500 award will be paid to the successful applicant after the meeting.
