As part of The Physiological Society's aim to 'promote the advancement of physiology' we provide travel grants to enable physiologists to network and attend conferences. The amount of funding available is relative to the type of membership you hold, with £700 available for Members, £500 for Affiliates and £100 for Undergraduate Members per rolling year.

Travel grants are awarded to enable Members, Affiliates and Undergraduates to:

    • Attend and present at a scientific conference
    • Visit another laboratory for collaborative research or to acquire/teach new techniques
    • Attend a practical workshop or training course that is relevant to physiology

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


    • Grants are awarded to current Members, Affiliates or Undergraduate Members of The Society.
    • The reason for your travel should be linked to The Society's objective of 'promoting the advancement of physiology'.
    • You will need to provide documentation to support the fact that you need to attend a meeting, workshop or laboratory.
    • Undergraduate Members are allowed to apply for a travel grant to attend a Society or Society-sponsored event or techniques workshop only. 
    • If you are an Affiliate Member and applying for a travel grant to a non-Society meeting, you are asked to be an Affiliate Member of The Society for more than one year's standing (which can include any Undergraduate membership) OR have previously presented at a Society Meeting.
    • Affiliate and Undergraduate Members may be asked to provide a letter of support from a supervisor or Head of Department, if this is required you will be contacted once your application is being reviewed.
    • Members are not required to submit a letter of support.
      • However, applicants are requested to submit a brief statement summarising the reason for attendance.
    • Travel grants should be used for the purpose of travel.
      • A sample of Members will be contacted on a random basis to account for monies received.
      • Please ensure you retain receipts for one calendar year.
    • Unused travel grants must be returned to The Society for the benefit of other physiologists.
      • Not returning unspent funds may result in future applications being rejected.
    • Recipients are required to include The Society logo on their posters or presentations.
