Deadline: 30 November 2021

Apply for up to £500 (c. $630; c. €560) funding towards your travel costs (transport only) to attend a non-RSA event. This grant is a fantastic opportunity to help you towards your travel costs to present your work, network and participate at world wide non RSA events within the field.

You must be a member of the RSA when applying (non-members are encouraged to apply and join at the same time) and when the event takes place and be presenting a paper at the event in the field of regional studies (sub-national). A maximum of two applications can be awarded per round. Those who are not successful are welcome to reapply. Only one grant can be awarded every five years of membership. Please be aware that the event you wish to attend needs to be held a minimum of 6 weeks after the Travel Grant application deadline has passed.  The full terms and conditions governing the grant are available in the Travel Grant Handbook. You can read reports from past RSA Travel Grant awardees in the section “Previous Awards”.

The application deadline for this grant scheme has been postponed until 2022. Due to the current circumstances, the RSA has instead decided to use these funds to launch the Small Grant Scheme on Pandemics, Cities, Regions & Industry.
