RHSRNbc Travel Bursary Competition
**Due to unforeseen COVID-19 circumstances, RHSRNbc is suspending the Travel Bursary competition until further notice**
Travel bursaries will be awarded to RHSRNbc members who have been invited to present their rural health services research orally or in poster format at either a national or international conference. There are four bursaries to be won—three national bursaries of up to $450 and one international bursary of $750. These bursaries are intended to subsidize the costs of travel and accommodation and other expenses related to conference participation.
Preference will be given to junior researchers, graduate students and community based researchers who, a) conduct research on or with rural communities in BC and b) who are able to clearly articulate their research link with rural health services research in their bursary application. Allowable expenses include: airfare, accommodation, conference registration, meals and transportation. Funds will be reimbursed after the conference with submission of original receipts and airline boarding passes. CIHR guidelines will be applied to define allowable expenses.

This competition has a rolling deadline and bursaries will be awarded on a first come first serve basis to deserving applications given they meet appropriate standards of quality. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible with a copy of your letter of acceptance from the conference organizers and a copy of your abstract.
