UKAN+ Regular Travel Grant Program

UKAN+ Regular Travel Grant Program

The UKAN+ regular travel grant aims to support travel to UKAN+ events (both Early Career (EC) and non-EC researchers), and to support non-EC researchers for individual travel attending academic events (e.g. conference, workshop), initiative visits for collaboration, etc.

Program requirements and process

  • You should be a UKAN+ member who cannot secure funding for travel elsewhere and who is not an EPSRC funded researcher/PhD.
  • The request should be submitted 3 weeks in advance of the travel to a UK event and 1 month before international travel, with evidence of confirmation to attend. Zoë will aim to respond to the request within 2 weeks of the request.
  • The requested funding should be proportionate and reasonable with justification provided, ideally with expected matched funding by the employer organisation.
  • Process: apply using the UKAN+ Travel Grant Form. When your application is approved, book your travel arrangements. To claim, forward the approved UKAN+ Travel Form/email, completed Expenses claim form (requested from Zoë and paying attention to the guidance notes) and receipts to Zoë. If you are University of Sheffield Staff please follow the internal process.
  • In submitting an application, the successful applicant agrees to complete a copy of the Outcomes of UK Acoustics Network Plus Travel Grant Form within 1 month of the end of the visit.

Please submit your application by filling the UKAN+ Travel Grant.
