Since 2015 we have been running an annual competition to provide funds of up to £1000 per applicant for unfunded PhD students and postdocs (within three years of completion) to facilitate their attendance of, and participation in conferences. This was in recognition of the difficulties faced by ECRs in raising the funds required to take part in these events.
