Overview:

NOTE: Application must be initiated on this website at least 9 weeks before the planned meeting and fully submitted at least 8 weeks before the meeting date.

Travel Grants are intended mainly to support attendance at scientific meetings that relate directly to the applicant's research interests, and where they will be presenting their original work. Grants may also be awarded to support research visits to laboratories or clinical departments, where exceptional training opportunities are not available in the home institution.

The grant contributes to costs incurred by clinical and non-clinical neurologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists and others for overseas visits or attendance at scientific meetings. It is restricted to those in doctoral and post doctoral training (whether clinically qualified or not) and for work undertaken while based in the United Kingdom. A maximum of three separate awards may be available to each applicant, with not more than one award in any 12 month period.
