Support for early career researchers to attend conferences

The Trust relaunched this scheme in 2022 in order to provide support for recently qualified researchers to attend conferences within the UK or overseas. The conferences must have relevance to UK forestry and must enable participants to present research and establish new collaborative networks. Up to 30% of eligible costs to a maximum of £1,000 per researcher to attend a suitable conference will be provided. Please dowload and read the Guidance here and complete the application form which can be found here.

The Trust has allocated £5,000 per annum to this fund on an annual rolling basis. Applications will be accepted at any time but applicants would be advised to contact the Director in advance to ensure that there are still funds available in the year in question.

Completed application forms should be sent to
