ASiT Regional Event Grants Resumed
In light of easing lockdown restrictions and ongoing efforts to promote educational events, ASiT is delighted to announce we are restarting our Regional Event Grants for members to organise meetings and courses in their regions. The grants have been on hold for the past year due to various restrictions on travel and face-to-face events owing to the pandemic (CLICK HERE to read the previous update).
The grants will contribute up to £100 towards the costs of holding local trainee meetings or organising educational courses for those currently in surgical training and ASiT has allocated £2,500 a year for a total of 25 available grants.
