Travel Awards

AVA Travel Awards provide funding (up to £750) for attendance costs at any conference or meeting at which the awardee will be presenting a paper or poster. Admissible costs are transport, registration, accommodation and subsistence (max £20/day) at a conference.

The awards are open to students registered for a PhD and post-docs within 5 year of achieving their PhD. Applicants must be AVA members and have attended at least one AVA meeting in the 18 months previous to the application deadline. Conferences must be held in the period 1st April 2017 – 1st April 2018.

Two awards will be made: one (the CRS award) made possible by a donation from our corporate member Cambridge Research Systems, and the other (the Geoffrey J Burton award) made possible by the Vision Scientists Memorial Fund. Recipients of awards are required to write a conference report for the AVA and CRS websites.

The closing date for applications is 1st April, 2017.

Completed application forms, together with a letter of support from your supervisor, should be sent i.mareschal@qmul.ac.uk. Applications will be judged on scientific merit by the Executive Committee of the AVA.
