What is travel support?
Travel support enables principal investigators, or other research staff employed on Arthritis Research UK funded awards, to attend prestigious or relevant national or international scientific meetings in order to present Arthritis Research UK-supported work.
The maximum total amount allotted for travel is a pro rata sum of:
- £750 per year (project grants, clinical studies and all categories of fellowship)
- £1,500 per year (programme grants)
- £500 per year (PhD studentships)
Applications will be accepted for meetings held up to 24 months after the end date of a grant or fellowship.
How to apply for travel support?
Applications for travel support may be made at any time via grant tracker, through the grant that you are presenting the work from.
Any application must be submitted at least 1 month before the date of the meeting and include an abstract of the work to be presented.
All costs relating to the travel will be reimbursed after the meeting on receipt of an expenses claim form and a completed post meeting report form.
