At the moment we have 1 confirmed travel bursary scheme with the Scottish Radiological Society (outlined below) for Scotland-based medical students.
Further travel bursary schemes (for England/Wales/NI and the Republic of Ireland) are in development; we are hoping to offer these officially in the coming weeks.
NOTE: All travel bursary schemes will require delegates to first register via our Eventbrite page. If the specific bursary scheme offers a travel bursary AND free registration, the registration fee will be refunded along with travel expenses after confirmed attendance at the RiiSE20 event.
