This scheme has now been discontinued.Following the Comprehensive Spending Review in 2010, the Society has unfortunately had to discontinue the International Travel Grants scheme. Instead applications for international collaborations will from now on be managed through the new International Exchanges Scheme.

Whilst we acknowledge that conference attendance is important in raising the profile of UK science and scientists, the Society has decided that facilitating international collaborations should be the priority during a period of budget constraints.
