RMS Travel Bursaries
If you are an early career researcher normally within 12 years of starting your PhD or are employed in a support role in microscopy or cytometry then these are for you.
If you have been a member of the Royal Microscopical Society for more than twelve months at the time of application and have been accepted to present a paper involving microscopy at a conference or workshop - either orally or as a poster - then you are eligible.
Bursary applications are considered by the Executive Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Treasurer. When there is a heavy demand preference will be given to those with one or more years of continuous membership. On occasions we also offer bursaries for specific events which will be publicised separately.

It is recognised that many RMS Members are engaged in outreach activities where some external funding would help with those little extras, such as consumables, refreshments etc. Council has set aside a special bursary fund for this specific purpose of up to £100 per application.
If you have been a member of the Royal Microscopical Society for more than one year at the time of application, you are eligible to apply for support from this fund.
Applications are considered by the Executive Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Secretary Education. Payment will be made after the event, on completing an RMS Expense Form and producing the relevant receipts and report, the deadline for this being 30 days after the date of the event.
To apply please fill in the application form and send it to Debbie Hunt.Download the RMS Public Engagement and Outreach Bursary Application Form
