Aim: This fund offers a mechanism for UK-based early career researchers (ECRs) working and studying within the academic UK CCS community to attend UKCCSRC meetings that they would not otherwise be able to attend. Funding is available to support travel and accommodation for the meeting.
Duration: ECRs may apply to the fund to support their attendance at a maximum of two UKCCSRC meetings per year. It is normally expected that meeting activities will take place within one month of notification of funding. For the UKCCSRC Conference in Sheffield we are accepting applications until 5pm 23rd March 2020.
Allocation of places: In the event that this call is oversubscribed, priority will be given i) to allowing attendance of ECRs from a range of institutions, and ii) to those who have not previously attended a UKCCSRC Conference and/or made other use of UKCCSRC support to attend meetings. The order in which applications have been received may also be used, if necessary, to allocate places.
Contact information: Please email Carys, UKCCSRC Finance and Interim Centre Manager, on firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any clarification on this call.
Applicants should note that awards will be reimbursed via an expense claim form or invoice received by the UKCCSRC team following the Conference. It is expected that ECRs will be able to travel to Sheffield on the morning of 7th April and return home on the afternoon of 8th April, therefore requiring only one overnight in stay in Sheffield. Requests for an additional night of accommodation should be justified and approved in advance.
