Travel Grants and IRC Funding
The International Relations Committee (IRC) of the AAGBI Foundation considers applications for funding for projects usually, but not exclusively, in lower resourced countries. There are three categories of grants: Travel Grants for Individuals; Project Grants; and Volunteer and Out of Programme Experience Grant.

The next IRC meeting applicants can submit a grant application to will be held in January 2017. The submission period is currently open for applications for travel taking place between 27 January 2017 and 11 May 2017. The deadline for applications is 3 January 2017.

Please note applications are not considered retrospectively.

The overall winner will receive the Wylie Medal in memory of Dr W Derek Wylie, President of the AAGBI 1980-82.

Undergraduate Elective Funding
Applications are invited from medical students studying in Great Britain and Ireland (subject to confirmation of eligibility) to apply to the AAGBI Foundation for funding towards a medical student elective period taking place between October 2016 and March 2017. A further round of funding will be advertised in the autumn for electives taking place from April 2017 onwards. Overseas students should ensure that they are permitted to apply for charitable funding.

Preference will be given to those applicants who can show the relevance of their intended elective to anaesthesia, intensive care or pain relief. Applicants may wish to note that a key focus of the AAGBI is support for projects in the developing world.

The deadline for submitting applications for electives taking place between October 2016 to March 2017 has now passed. Applications will be considered at the September 2016 meeting of the Research & Grants Committee.
