Annual Meeting Bursaries


The Annual Meeting Travel Bursary and Annual Meeting Research Abstract Bursary are for attending BSG LIVE'24 on 17th - 20th June 2024 in Birmingham.

Annual Meeting Travel Bursary

The BSG Education Committee invites BSG members including nurses, trainees, and undergraduates in any area of gastroenterology to apply for 1 of 40 travel bursaries. Of the 40, 20 are available to undergraduates with the rest reserved for nurses and trainees.

Each bursary of up to £500 is funded by the BSG and is intended to reimburse the costs of registration, travel and/or accommodation. Other costs (meals, poster preparation, visas etc.) will not be supported. Please note that priority will be given to those attending the full conference.

Successful applicants: bursaries will be paid after the relevant meeting on submission of your expense claim and a brief report outlining what you felt was most valuable about attending the conference, what you enjoyed the most, and what you learned that you could bring back to your daily work. You must be a BSG member to apply for a bursary.

Trainees can also produce a Web Education article with guidance from their consultant in order to qualify for a bursary. An example of a Trainee Education article is provided here. Please contact education@bsg.org.uk to express an interest in submitting an article.
