The ABS Trust will accept applications from early career researchers (students or within 5 years of PhD) to support activities such as but not limited to presentation of their research at a conference, attendance of an appropriate workshop, visit to an overseas laboratory etc. It is unlikely that the ABS Trust UK Bursary will be able to provide the full costs of the activity and will not normally exceed £500. Within your application, please indicate whether a matching or greater contribution will be made available by your institution or other funding source.
