Funding available to attend conferences

If you require financial support to attend either the Student & Early Careers Conference or the Atmospheric Science Conference this summer, the Society has a number of grant and legacy funds to help ensure you can attend these events.

There is a short application to complete. The only requirement is that you have been a Society member for at least one year. The grant schemes available are:

  • The Rupert Ford Award is awarded to outstanding young scientists from any part of the world to enable them to undertake research work or study in meteorology or associated physical oceanography (air-sea interaction) at a centre of excellence outside their own countries.
  • The Legacies Fund is made up of small monetary grants made to members (usually younger scientists) to help finance expeditions, carry our research or attend meteorological conferences, for which adequate funds are not otherwise available.
  • The Carers Fund provides small monetary grants to help you attend meteorologically-related events or conferences that you may not otherwise be able attend because you care for someone else

Grants and funds cannot be allocated retrospectively so please submit your applications as soon as possible to secure funding.
