Funding to support conference attendance

This year ISAE are in a position to support some student members of the UK & Ireland branch of the ISAE to attend the conference. Please note this only covers travel and accommodation, it does not cover the conference fee, as the conference fee is already offered at a reduced rate for students to support attendance. In order to qualify you must be a member of the ISAE, and you must have an abstract accepted for presentation. To apply for funding support you must return the attached form along with a short CV by 5pm on 28 February 2023. 


Please note that this is being held the day after the AWRN-funded Workshop on ‘Understanding the impact of human-animal and machine-animal interactions on animals’ which is at the same venue to enable delegates to combine the two into one trip.
