Awards & Grants

 

AWARDS AND GRANTS
Bill Pallister Award

An amount of £5,000 is available during any single calendar year, and will usually be paid to a single applicant but may be divided between applicants, at the discretion of the education committee.  The award is intended to support a trainee or consultant within three years of appointment to travel to an overseas centre of interest.

Awards will not normally be made to assist with attendance at training courses (for example transoesophageal echo courses) or conferences unless there is a clear benefit to the wider membership of the Association.

Recipients of awards will be expected to write a report for the ACTACC Newsletter and give an oral or poster presentation at an ACTACC Spring or Autumn Scientific Meeting within 12 months of completing their overseas visit.

Applications should include an outline of your intended fellowship on the attached form and a truncated copy of your CV and should be submitted to the Honorary Secretary by the 31st December each year.  Applications will be adjudicated by the ACTACC Education Committee and announced during the Spring Scientific Meeting.

Applicants need to have been an ACTACC member in good standing for at least 12 months by the closing date of applications on 31 December each year.

If the Award is to be used to part-fund an educational activity, ACTACC will require written confirmation that the rest of the funding required is available before any money is released.
