BSPP Event Organisation Fund
BSPP members can apply for limited funds to support the organisation of plant pathology related conferences, meetings and workshops. For example, funds could be used to reduce conference fees for students, to finance visiting speakers, to prepare documentation, to subsidise excursions etc.
The amount awarded is at the discretion of the Board and will depend on the benefit to plant pathology, but will not exceed £4000. Application for funding, using the attached forms, should be made to the BSPP President Elect at least 4 months ahead of the intended date of the conference.
Successful applicants should acknowledge the funding at the conference, and use the opportunity to promote BSPP and plant pathology where possible. It is a requirement that a report is submitted after the conference. You can view examples of reports here.
