The Event Support Grant is available to Full, International, ECS or Life Members wanting financial support to provide a lecture, or lecture series. These lectures may be organised by local or national groups with a special interest in applied microbiology. The grant is aimed at supporting the promotion of the science of applied microbiology at a local level as well as providing a networking opportunity for established scientists and students working in applied microbiology.

Costs will normally be paid retrospectively following verification of all original receipts by the Society office. The applicant must complete an expense claim form (available from the Society). Expenses will be paid in one instalment after the lecture or meeting on production of original receipts. No payments will be made without this documentation.

Successful applicants must submit their claim for reimbursement within three months from the date of the lecture or meeting. Reimbursement of expenses will only be paid by bank transfer directly into the group's bank account normally in GB Pounds Sterling, Euro, US/Canadian/Australian Dollars, or by cheque (UK or Euro). Under no circumstances will intermediary banks be used.

Application forms must be received in the Society office at least eight weeks prior to the event.
