Travel grants

Keen to attend an aquaculture conference to help with your study, but don’t have the resources to make it happen? You could be eligible for a SAIC conference grant if you’re a postgraduate student at a Scottish university and your study is supported by an aquaculture company in Scotland

If you are travelling to a conference within Europe, you can apply for a grant of up to £500, and for travelling further afield, a grant of up to £800 is available from SAIC. Grant funds can be used to cover the conference registration fee, with the remainder helping towards travel and subsistence costs.

How to apply

You can apply any time up to one month before the start date of the conference. Simply download the SAIC conference grant application and return your completed form to our Head of Skills and Talent. We will then be in touch as soon as possible to tell you if your application has been successful.
