UACES has a longstanding commitment towards assisting and providing opportunities for early-career researchers. The UACES travel scheme was established to provide some financial assistance for students attending UACES events who would not otherwise receive ANY funding towards their travel expenses. From 2017, Early-Career Members of UACES are also eligible for travel support.
UACES will pay up to 50% of your travel expenses for travel to/from a qualifying event. The following conditions apply:
- Claims can only be made for 'qualifying events' which will be listed on the Calendar of Events; they will be identified by the travel icon shown below;
- You have not, or will not, receive any other financial support for travel for the same event;
- UACES reserves the right at all times to refuse any travel claim;
- You must, wherever possible, use the most cost-effective means of transport available;
- Travel claims must be submitted within three weeks after completion of the event;
- The travel claim form must be completed in full (and be legible).
- You must be a current Student member or Early-Career Member of UACES (please note that membership of the Graduate Forum is not the same as membership of UACES);
- Payment is conditional upon attendance (as such, claims cannot be processed before the event);
- Accommodation and/or subsistence expenses are not eligible as travel expenses in this scheme.
