At the 2018 Swansea ASM, the board decided to make a regular award to RA-UK members to attend the following courses:
1) One full RA-UK member to attend the ESRA Instructors Course which usually runs in June each year (£500 to support costs/travel).
2) One trainee RA-UK member to attend the ESRA Trainee and Resident Workshop each year (£500 to support costs/travel).
Details of the courses can be found here,
A report from the 2019 trainee attendee can be found here
We are also providing an annual travel grant for any RA-UK member attending either ESRA or ASRA to present scientific work.
In the event that the RA-UK award winner wins further a meeting travel award, the RA-UK grant will be awarded to the second choice applicant (or will defer to the next meeting). The £500 award will be paid to the successful applicant after the meeting.
