Nature of support

Council will consider applications for financial support towards:

  1. travel expenses
  2. accommodation and subsistence allowance
  3. registration


Applicants are expected to travel by the most economical means available. Only if other means of travel are unsuitable, air fares will be considered. Applicants are expected to take advantage of discount fares, charter arrangements etc. where available.

Accommodation and support

Depending on the venue of the meeting, support will usually be considered only for the less expensive hotels, halls of residence etc.

Allocation of funds

The Council’s decision about allocation of funds will be final. It will be left to their discretion to decide whether individuals will receive partial or total support. In order to spread the benefit to as many applicants as possible, requests for partial support will more likely be selected.
