Initiative Fund

The Association’s Initiative Fund provides small grants to individuals who are members of the Association to help defray the costs of research events (conferences, study days, workshops etc.), and support for postgraduate activities and travel (in addition to specific funding for postgraduate conferences and events). The Association is particularly keen to encourage and support regionally-based collaborative initiatives on the part of its members, which should be intended to benefit a wide public.
