Travel Grants

As part of building international research collaboration, we offer annual international travel grants.

The SCI International Travel Collaboration Grants support recipients to attend the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Annual Scientific Meeting and participate in workshops.

These grants are designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and to build relationships between individuals, institutions and countries involved in spinal cord research by funding attendance at the ISCoS Annual Scientific Meeting. They also provide an opportunity to connect with institutions and organisations that support the grant recipient’s area of research.

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISCoS is being held as a virtual conference from 1-5 September.

The SRI is offering SCI Research Collaboration Grants to cover registration costs for the virtual five day meeting. This year, group applications will be supported where it can be shown researchers are working to pool expertise and obtain cross-fertilisation of research ideas through collaboration.

Applications for this year’s grants are now closed. The successful applicants will be announced in the coming weeks.

You can learn more about the SRI’s process for advertising, assessing and awarding travel grants here.
