Travel Grants

The Houghton Trust receives royalties generated by the sale of the journal Avian Pathology. A fund has been established to provide grants to young research workers of any nationality for undertaking the following:

  1. Attendance and participation in scientific meetings.
  2. Short visits to laboratories for discussion and/or learning specific techniques.
  3. Attendance at appropriate training courses.

It is an absolute requirement that the grant will be used in furtherance of research on avian diseases. Applicants should normally be aged 35 or under.

Grants may be awarded in full or in part; most awards are for only part of the cost. Applicants are more likely to be successful if they can show that attempts have been made to obtain part of the funding from other sources, including their employer.

Potential applicants are advised to apply many months before the scientific meetings etc. If exact cost are not known then a good estimate should be given. The Houghton Trust Grants Subcommittee will consider applications on three occasions each year. The deadlines for applications are 14th of February, June and November.

Applications must be made on a form which is available from:
