The next travel grant deadlines are to be determined
When sending your application to email@example.com, please state in the email subject heading “Travel grant application”.
Please read the criteria before applying to check eligibility.
Applicants must be fully paid-up BSMM members, of at least one year’s standing at
the time of the next Travel Grant deadline. Alternatively, applicants must be student members at the time of application. Preference will be given to applicants
known to have made a contribution to the Society.
Any activity which is perceived to have educational merit, including attendance at
training or research events, will be considered for a BSMM travel grant. The grant
will cover travel and registration costs (where applicable) only. Applications for
laboratory visits should be made under the heading of the Glyn Evans Mycology
Copies of the following documents must be submitted with the completed Travel
Grant application form:
(i) Registration form (or other document specifying the nature and cost of the
event which is to be funded);
(ii) Abstracts (if the applicant is making a poster, oral or other presentation);
(iii) Letter of invitation (if the applicant is an invited participant).
There will be three application deadlines each year, published in the BSMM
newsletter and on the BSMM website (www.bsmm.org). Applications for events
which precede the next deadline, and retrospective applications, will not be
considered (i.e. the event must start after the next available application deadline). A
member will not be eligible if he/she has received a previous BSMM travel grant for
an event that started less than three years before the next available application
Applications will be assessed by the BSMM committee. Available travel grant funds
will be distributed among applicants according to the perceived educational merit of
the funded event. Criteria that will increase the likelihood of funding include junior
status of applicant (e.g. PhD student or other trainee), proposed oral or poster
presentation, recent active participation at a BSMM-organized meeting and
application for co-sponsorship from another organization. The maximum value of a
single grant will be determined by the Committee at each deadline. Funding decisions
will be made within three weeks of the application deadline.
The recipient must produce evidence of attendance at the meeting and a report of the
activity attended, within 3 weeks of its completion. The report should be
approximately 300-500 words in length, and should be submitted to the BSMM Hon.
Secretary. The report may be published in the BSMM newsletter. Receipts should be sent to the Treasurer to claim the award. This may be done before
the meeting has taken place.

society during his career as a mycologist. Please read the criteria before applying to check eligibility.
Applicants must be fully paid-up BSMM members, normally of at least one year’s

There are no set application deadlines for Glyn Evans Awards. Applications may
be submitted for consideration at any time. An award will not usually be made if
the applicant has received a previous award (Travel Grant or Glyn Evans Award)
less than three years before the application date.
Applications will be assessed by the BSMM committee. Each application will be
considered on its merits. The value of each grant will be determined by the
Committee at each deadline. Funding decisions will be made within three weeks
of the application where possible. However it is in the interest of the applicant to
apply for the Award as far in advance as possible.
The recipient must produce a report of the activity funded within 3 weeks of its
completion. The report should be approximately 500 words in length, and should
be submitted to the BSMM Hon. Secretary. The report may be published in the
BSMM Newsletter. Receipts should be sent to the Treasurer to claim the award. This may be done
before the activity has taken place.
