The BRS offers a number of New Investigator Awards at its annual meeting for eligible authors. If you are eligible and would like to be considered for one of these awards, please download the eligibility form and submit it as instructed when you submit your abstract.
Eligibility criteria - Award applicants must be:
. A member of BRS (at the time of applying and during the annual meeting)
. Either working towards, or within 5 years of attaining, a postgraduate degree or completion of specialist training
. A presenting author (oral or poster) at the annual BRS meeting
For the top scoring abstracts from eligible authors, the award will consist of £400 towards Registration, accommodation fees and travelling expenses.
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 can be claimed to attend an international or BRS conference and up to £75 to attend a non-BRS conference. There is only one award per person, per year.
To apply please email the treasurer with your BRS membership number, details of the meeting you are attending, a copy of the accepted abstract and a break down of expenditure.
