2024 Nominations Closed.

Needing financial assistance to attend the ARMS 2024 Darwin Conference this September? The Society is now calling for applications for our 2024 Chapter Travel Awards!

Chapter Travel Awards aim to provide financial support to eligible ARMS members wishing to attend the ARMS Darwin Conference from 11-13 September 2024.

These awards provide financial assistance to help offset costs relating to attending the conference (i.e., flights, accommodation, or conference registration). Each eligible applicant will be required to specify the level of support being requested (including a justification for support) and to demonstrate how any shortfalls are likely to be covered.

Please download the guidelines and application form to apply.
