Childcare Award

The BSCB now accepts applications to provide financial help with childcare or care for dependents when the applicant is presenting at a scientific meeting. All claims will require approval with appropriate receipts. You will be notified within 2-3 weeks of the outcome. For example, these claims can be for:

1. Home-based childcare/dependent care expenses incurred because of meeting attendance (funds may not be applied to normal ongoing expenses).

2. Travel of a relative or other care provider to your home to care for your child(ren) or dependent while attending a meeting.

3. Travel of a care provider to the meeting with you to care for your child(ren) in that city.

Please download the form here and submit it to the Honor Fell / Company of Biologists Travel Awards Secretary.

Please note that the maximum amount that can be applied for is £250. No payments will be made without supporting receipts.
