As in year's past, CCP4 has made funding available for students, to help with the costs of attending Study Weekend, in the form of a bursary. All students are eligible for a standard bursary which covers registration plus one nights accommodation in halls. Bursaries will be given on a first-come, first-served basis and will only be given out during the early bird registration period - 7 September to 22 November. Please make note of this when registering.

To obtain a bursary, please tick the section "Check this box if you are eligible for a Speaker/Student Concession" on the registration form.

Please also note that should you obtain a bursary and cancel after the latest cancellation date of 30 November you WILL be liable to pay.  This is because we have had a number of students obtaining bursaries and then cancelling last minute.  STFC had to bear the cost of such late cancellations

Limited funds will also be made available to help pay travel costs for students and young post-docs from non-UK laboratories. Please send a separate letter, signed by your supervisor and stating the expected cost of travel in pounds sterling, to justify applications for travel support. Supervisors are asked to nominate only one candidate from their Laboratory. Delegates are expected to travel by the most economic means possible. Candidates from less favoured regions will be given preference.

Applications should be sent to:

You can also fax copies of your letters to Helen  on +44 (0)1235 567720 or e-mail h.walker@stfc.ac.uk.

Applications for Travel Assistance MUST be received by 31 October 2015.
