Overview:

The Society for Reproduction and Fertility

The Society was formed in July 2001 through the amalgamation of the Society for the Study of Fertility (SSF) and the Journals of Reproduction and Fertility Ltd (JRF). The SRF carries forward the long standing heritage of the SSF/JRF in being one of the principal scientific societies specialising in reproductive biology, both within the UK and internationally.

Travel Grants

SRF members are eligible to apply to the Society for financial support to attend conferences and meetings relevant to the fields of reproductive biology and fertility.

The value of each award will be determined by the distance travelled by the applicant from their place of residence to the location of the meeting they wish to attend (calculated by the SRF Secretariat), with the maximum amounts awarded as follows:

  • Less than 1000 km travelled: up to £500
  • 1000 – 3000 km travelled: up to £650
  • Over 3000 km travelled: up to £800

The SRF is only able to support a proportion of the costs of attending a meeting; therefore no award will exceed 70% of the total cost of attending the meeting/conference. All grants will be paid in £’s sterling, and will usually be made in advance. Eligible members may receive one travel grant in any two year period.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Only non-statutory SRF members are eligible to apply for Travel Grants.

  • Early career and retired members are eligible to apply for Travel Grants to support attendance at events OTHER THAN the SRF Annual Meeting or Joint Fertility meeting.

    • Full members are eligible to apply for an SRF Travel Grant to attend SRF-sponsored meetings.
  • Applications must be submitted in advance of the event to which they relate.


You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicants must have held SRF membership for at least one year in order to be eligible to apply for an SRF Travel Grant. MSc students, and PhD students in their first year of study, are exempt from this requirement. Applicants should ensure that their subscriptions to SRF for the current year have been paid, as applications cannot be processed until this has been done.

Ineligibility:

  • Early Career and Retired Members are not eligible to apply for SRF Travel Grants to support attendance at the SRF Annual Meeting or Joint Fertility meeting, as financial support to attend these conferences is provided by the Society through other mechanisms.
  • Retrospective applications will not be considered.
