Non-student travel awards

These awards are primarily to help non-student members to attend scientific meetings relevant to cancer research.

Applicants for all BACR Awards should send their applications and all documentation by Email to the BACR Secretariat:

Applicants can expect to hear the outcome within a month of the closing date.


Up to £1,000 for overseas meetings and £500 for UK meetings. Bursaries will cover economy class travel, registration fees and cost of accommodation.

The total sum requested should be stated in the application. However, as it is unlikely that the cost will be met in full, applicants are encouraged to seek additional awards or support from their home institution. Evidence of other funding obtained should also be provided. All receipts must be returned along with a written report that may be published in the Association's newsletter.

Available to all individuals who have been BACR members for one year at time of application.

Applicants will be expected to submit an abstract and to present their work at the relevant meeting and should submit copies of the abstract with their application. The Association should be appropriately acknowledged on any poster or presentation. Members may apply to the BACR for a second award (either travel award or fellowship) but this must be at least 3 years following the initial award.
