Education Travel Grants

GUIDELINES FOR THE ALLOCATION OF ACB TRAVEL GRANTS

  • Travel grants may be awarded to individuals, who have been ordinary members of the Association for Clinical Biochemistry for at least two years, for the purposes of attending scientific meetings and specialist training courses relevant to their discipline and are not intended to fund basic training. These grants may cover in whole or in part expenses due to travel, registration and subsistence.
  • Applications for those grants will be considered by a sub-group of the Education Committee of the Association to include the Director and Deputy Director of Education, Training & Workforce and in conjunction with the Director of Finance for the Association.
  • Members should complete the appropriate application form and provide:
    - evidence of membership of the Association for at least two years
    - full details including costs of the meeting/course they wish to attend
    - a detailed costing of travel and subsistence. Where travel abroad is included, estimates of costs from a travel agent should be included
    - details of other sources of financial support to which they have applied
    - details of active participation and support of the Association's affairs
  • Applications will be considered throughout the year. This includes applications to attend the National Meeting of the Association.
  • With limited funding, particular consideration will be given to trainee members of the Association, as well as members presenting scientific work (poster, workshop, oral presentation) at the meeting for which they are applying for a grant.
  • Retrospective applications will NOT be considered.
  • Application forms for Travel Grants are obtainable from the 'Documents' page within the members area of the website.
