Cambridge Research Systems AVA Travel Award






We are sponsoring the new AVA Travel Award. It provides funding for students (postgraduates studying for a higher degree or first-year postdoctoral junior scientists) based in the UK travelling to any conferences or meetings at which they will be presenting a paper or poster. The maximum award to any one individual is 750 UK pounds.

One award will be made each year. The closing date for the award this year is 12th April, 2013 and it will be for conferences held from 25th April, 2013 to 16th March, 2014 (i.e. there will not be retrospective awards). The award is specifically to cover transport, registration, accommodation and up to £20 per day subsistence at a conference.  Applicants do not have to be presenting at an AVA conference. The recipient of the award is required to write a report of the conference they attended which will be included on the AVA website. CRS will work with the authors to present their work on the CRS website in an appropriate form.
