The Society uses a large proportion of its available funds to support members wishing to present their research at National and International Meetings or to attend work-related training courses. These travel bursaries take the form of part defrayment of the travel costs. Applications should be made to the Treasurer prior to starting travel, giving details of the meeting and the travel costs, along with a copy of the accepted abstract. Applicants must be members of the BRS and must acknowledge BRS support on their poster/presentation.
The level of support will be dependent upon the funds available so bursaries cannot be awarded retrospectively. Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the BRS committee, up to £150 to attend an international conference, up to £100 to attend a BRS conference and up to £75 to attend a non-BRS conference.
