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

Due to the development of COVID-19, some BDIAP bursaries are still suspended until further notice. If you have any queries please contact the administrative team

Travel Bursaries are still suspended until further notice. 

These are intended to support the cost of overseas travel undertaken by UK Members of the British Division, where the journey is one which may be expected to further the aims of the British Division.

The purpose of these Travel Bursaries is flexible, but they are particularly intended to support visits by members of the British Division to meetings of other IAP Divisions, especially where the member of the British Division is providing some input to the meeting, and especially if the 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.

Conditions of a Travel Bursary

  • A Travel Bursary will provide up to £500 (Five hundred UK pounds) towards the cost of travel and accommodation. Meeting registration fees, where required, will be reimbursed in addition.
  • Requests for reimbursement must be accompanied by appropriate receipts.
  • A member is not entitled to more than one Travel Bursary in any two-year period.
  • Recipients of the bursary are required to submit a short report following the award. 

Application Process

Please submit your request for a Travel Bursary to the Divisional Editor of the BDIAP and copy the email to Sam Kiely, BDIAP Administrative Assistant.
