                                                  The British Cardiovascular Society
                                                                      Travel Bursary Scheme

Introduction

The British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) is uniquely placed to facilitate, coordinate and
deliver high quality education for its members. At times of financial constraint, securing
support to attend National, European and International congresses/conferences has
become increasingly difficult. The BCS, through support from the British Heart
Foundation and industry has been able to provide some travel bursaries to attend the
BCS Annual Conference but is now able to extend support to attend certain
congresses/conferences through its Travel Bursary Scheme.

Eligibility for Travel Bursary Scheme

The scheme is open to all members of the BCS who fulfil the criteria below :

                     Consultants and other members presenting at ACC/AHA/ESC or

                     Trainees at ST3 level or above, presenting (including posters) at
                      BCS/ACC/AHA/ESC or

                     Allied professionals (including non-Consultant members) attending the Annual
                      Conference of the BCS

Applications

Applications for a travel bursary should include a completed application form together
with supporting documentation (confirmation of presentation). For allied professionals to
attend the BCS Annual Conference, a statement indicating reason for/benefit of
attending the conference should be provided. Completed applications should be emailed
to bursaries@bcs.com

All successful applicants will be notified in writing.
