Anybody here applied for conference travel grants ?

  1. Feb 26, 2009 #1
    Got an ok to do a poster presentation at a neuroscience conference in Honk Kong. I am not sure whether my budget can stretch. I heard that grants are available which will cover half these costs.

    Anybody know anything about these grants, if travelling from Britain ?

    Various sources to try (in order).
    Your dept (I assume you a grad student?) normally giving a talk/poster is a requirement to get funding.
    Your research council
    Your university
    College (oxbridge by any chance ?)

    Then you can see if the conference has any grants - if it is being run by a well funded industry/international body it might have.

    There are also a few general charities that award grants, your university should have a directory/someone that knows about them.
