The British Division of the IAP is able to offer a limited number of Travel Bursaries to its Members.

The BDIAP is offering a total of five travel bursaries each year intended to support the cost of overseas travel undertaken by Member Country Members of the BDIAP, where the journey is one which may be expected to further the aims of the BDIAP.

The purpose of these Travel Bursaries is flexible, but they are particularly intended to support visits by members of the BDIAP to meetings of other IAP Divisions, especially where the member of the BDIAP is providing some input to the meeting, and especially if the IAP Division in question has relatively limited resources to support the cost of travel. This is regarded as a means by which the BDIAP will support training in pathology in less affluent parts of the world.
