NOTE: There is no deadline for applications for this grant. All applications will be processed upon receipt of the form by the Society office. Applications must be received by the Society FOUR weeks in advance of the event.

The purpose of the Registration Fees Grant is to support members to attend an applied microbiology scientific meeting within the member’s country of residence. These costs are limited to registration fees only to a maximum of £300. This grant is available to all members including those currently on maternity/paternity leave.

For applicants with home responsibilities, an additional £300 may be awarded in the form of a Care Giver Support Grant, available to help cover costs of child/dependent care whilst attending an event. The Care Giver Support grant can be awarded separately or in conjunction with the Registration Fee Grant. A separate application must be made for this award.
