Win up to £1500 to travel with BSAS young scientist scholarship

Scientists at the start of their career could win up to £1500 to fund travel opportunities in the UK or overseas thanks to a special BSAS scholarship.

The BSAS Sir Kenneth Blaxter Award aims to provide opportunities for younger BSAS members to travel to broaden their networks and experiences by attending conferences or carrying out special overseas study tours.

Aimed at postgraduate students or those in the early stages of their animal science career (less than two years post-PhD or MSc), it is only open to BSAS members.

There are no specific categories, so applicants can apply for funds in relation to any relevant animal science activity. 

Previous awards were used to fund attendance at the Plant and Animal Genomes Conference in California to present PhD work, and visits to the University of Kentucky's equine research facilities.

The awards committee will look to identify applications where there will be a clear added career value to the applicant.

To be in with a chance, applications must make their submission by Wednesday 31 October.
