Support for attending meetings
Just finished the RSC CICAG committee meeting and one of the discussion items was support for people to attend conferences and meetings. CICAG is committed to supporting attendance at our meetings in as many ways as possible. We always ensure that the venue supports wheelchair access and that any meals accommodate any dietary requirements that have been gathered on registration.
We offer student bursaries to help cover registration, travel, and accommodation if required. These are detailed on the individual conference pages. If you are making a particularly lengthly journey and need additional help please get in touch and we will see what we can do to help.
There are also travel grants Travel grants both for students and early career scientists https://www.rsc.org/ScienceAndTechnology/Funding/division-travel-grants/index.asp to attend conferences or workshops.
A recent addition are awards for carers https://www.rsc.org/campaigning-outreach/campaigning/incldiv/grants-for-carers/ caring responsibilities are wide and varied, but they can sometimes be hard to balance alongside attending conferences.
