Travel Fellowship Scheme

The travel fellowship scheme for 2021 is now open.

BSACI is funding Travel Fellowships to enable delegates who submit abstracts to attend the annual meeting to present their work. The funds can be used towards costs to pay for travel, registration and accommodation costs up to £150.

We will accept applications from both BSACI and non BSACI members and are proud that this scheme helps support the involvement amongst students and all healthcare professionals who have less access to financial resources.

With the increasing number of Travel Fellowship applications we receive each year, we are limiting applications to delegates submitting accepted abstracts who are trainees, students, nurses or allied health professionals. When allocating funds, priority will be given to BSACI members. Fellowships will be awarded on the grounds of those perceived to be in most financial need or having incurred the greatest expense to attend, rather than on the particular strength of their abstract itself. This is consistent with our wish to make the annual meeting as inclusive as possible.  If you have any questions please contact bsaci@medivents.co.uk

How to apply

Please send an email to bsaci@medivents.co.uk no later than Friday 23rd July to include the following:

  1. A supporting letter from your head of department
  2. Covering letter from yourself indicating the number of nights you are staying and informing us if you have also applied to/been awarded other funding sources for support to attend this event.
  3. Confirmation of your accepted abstract

You will be notified of the outcome of your application by email on Wednesday 4th August. If you are successful your registration, travel and accommodation costs will be reimbursed up to £150 on production of relevant receipts after the meeting.
