Bursary for Fertility 2020
Aim: Fertility 2020, the joint annual conference of ACE, BFS and the SRF is the main scientific conference in the SRF’s annual calendar of events. Fertility 2020 will take place at the EICC Edinburgh 9 – 11 January 2020 and the SRF wishes to encourage and support the attendance of its Members. To this end we will once again be offering SRF Bursaries which will support (i) Registration, (ii) Accommodation and (iii) Travel for SRF delegates.
This is a stand-alone bursary and so the eligibility criteria which relates to SRF travel grants only being awarded once in any two-year period does not apply. Members who have received a travel grant within the past two years may apply for a bursary to attend Fertility 2020.
The Bursary available for Fertility 2020 (below) will be reviewed after the meeting by SRF Council and may be revised for future annual meetings.
SRF FERTILITY 2018 BURSARY PLAN:
Full, Early Career (ECM)* and Retired Members who have been SRF Members for at least one year (i.e. must have paid their membership fee for 2019) are eligible to apply.
* The requirement for one year membership will be waived for ECM Members in the first year of their PhD or at BSc/MSc education levels.
Honorary Members are also able to apply for a bursary to attend Fertility 2020.
The bursary comprises of all three parts listed below:
- Registration: Full, Early Career**, Retired Members and Honorary Members attending all days of the Fertility meeting will be eligible for £365 to cover fully the cost of the Member Full Conference ‘Early Bird’ registration fee (£365). The Registration part of the bursary will be proportionately reduced for delegates attending only one or two days of the meeting. The SRF will also cover the cost for delegates who wish to attend the conference dinner.
** This is applicable to our ECMs who are undergraduate, nonsalaried students. The rate is £150 (fixed rate for attending part or all of the conference) and if eligible, this is the level of registration fee that will be covered by the SRF for their attendance. Members who meet the criteria should select the ‘Student Member Registration’ when indicating on the bursary application form what type of registration they intend to make for Fertility. When going on to register for Fertility, students will be contacted by the Fertility organisers to ask for proof of status.
- Accommodation: The SRF will arrange your accommodation for you for the duration of the conference.
- Travel: Support will be offered to all Bursary applicants based upon a fixed band system on distance travelled from the address you provide and will be calculated as follows:
Note: The Registration element of the bursary will be taken off ‘at source’ i.e. You will receive a discount code from the SRF which you will need to input when registering online to ensure you are not charged for registration (or are charged the difference between early bird and standard rates). The Bursary Travel component will be paid to you directly after the SRF has received proof of registration but, where possible, before the conference takes place.
Applications for SRF Bursaries for Fertility 2020 will open shortly.
