Bursaries & scholarships
The Les Fountain Travel Bursary
The Les Fountain Bursary is available to support junior SSBP members (students and others in full-time training) from within the UK who have been selected to present a talk or poster at the International Research Symposium. Bursaries take the form of free registration. In 2009 a maximum of five bursaries will be awarded.
TS Alliance/SSBP Junior Travel Bursaries
In 2009 travel bursaries will be available to support the travel costs of junior investigators (students and others in full-time training) from outside the UK who have been selected to present a talk or poster at the International Research Symposium. Awards will have a maximum value of £500 each. We anticipate awarding four or five Junior Travel Bursaries. Preference will be given to members of the SSBP.
Applications for both awards are made in the same way. Please indicate clearly whether you are applying for a Les Fountain Bursary or a TS Alliance/SSBP Junior Travel Bursary.
