Travel Bursary

We are now seeking entries in our 2016 Johnny Sutton Travel Bursary Prize

Prize: £500

The Encephalitis Society would like to invite junior doctors and early research fellows (up to 10 years post-PhD) interested in encephalitis to apply for their 2016/17 Travel Bursary.

The bursary can be used to present a project on encephalitis at a conference (outside the UK), or elective travel, or to visit a laboratory, research, clinical or other group working on encephalitis, if it supports some aspect of the doctor/fellow’s work in this area.

A prize of £500 will be awarded to the doctor/fellow who best demonstrates how people affected by encephalitis will benefit from their trip. The winner will be announced at The Society’s Professional Panel meeting on 5th December 2016 and travel can take place any time the following year up to 30th November 2017.

The deadline for entries is 12 noon on Saturday, October 1, 2016.
