Travel Grants and IRC Funding
The International Relations Committee (IRC) of the AAGBI Foundation considers applications to fund projects usually, but not exclusively, in lower resourced countries. There are four categories of grants:

  • Travel Grants for Individuals
  • Project Grants
  • Volunteer and Out of Programme Experience Grants
  • SAFE Project Grants

The next IRC meeting applicants can submit a grant application to will be held in April 2019. The submission period is currently open to applications for travel taking place between 24 May 2019 and 25 July 2019. The deadline for these applications is 22 March 2019.

Please note applications are not considered retrospectively, so applications must be made in advance of travel so that a decision can be taken at the next available committee meeting.
