Educational/Travel Grants

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 webmaster@ra-uk.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 will be found here in due course,

 

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 webmaster@ra-uk.org, 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.
