Travel grants are available to enable investigators to visit other laboratories, at home or abroad, to gain experience in a relevant area of research. Payments are for travel and subsistence. BSHT members may also apply for travel funds to support a foreign visitor, who wishes to come to the UK, to gain experience in a particular area of haemostasis: applications must be made well in advance of the visit.
Individuals in tenured positions must be a member of the Society to be eligible. Applications will also be considered from individuals in training positions e.g. PhD students or recent post-docs, if supported by a member of the BSHT. The present maximum grant is 1500 pounds per visit. Applications should be made by email to the treasurer, Prof Anne Goodeve. They can be made at any time and should include details of the visit, a breakdown of the likely costs, as well as the applicants brief CV. Recipients are asked to apply well in advance of their visit and must provide a report on their return.
Educational Sub-Committee Grants
The Society encourages educational meetings and small meetings on specialist topics to which members of the Society are invited. Applications for financial support for such meetings should be made by email to the treasurer Prof Anne Goodeve, giving details of the meeting proposed. Applications will be considered by the educational sub-committee. A report must be provided after the meeting.
The Society provides a limited amount of funding (up to 500 pounds per application) to allow investigators to attend meetings (ISTH meetings are dealt with separately, see below). Applicants must be an active, paid up member* of BSHT, and should not have received a BSHT Congress or ISTH Bursary in the previous 2 years.
Applicants should email the Treasurer, Prof Anne Goodeve, with a completed application form (click here), a brief CV, as well as a copy of the abstract submitted. It is advised to apply as early as possible, since applications will only be considered twice each year (at 31st March and 31st October).
