Supporting and enhancing the development of competence in neuroscience nursing

Financial Support

BANN offers educational grant for attending Conferences, Study Tours or undertaking Research.

  • Applicants must be Full or Associate members of the Association whose fees are paid up to date.
  • Applicants attending study days/workshops/conferences, etc. - relevant to Neuroscience Nursing - who are presenting a paper or leading a session, and whose expenses are not met in full from any other source.
  • Applicants on longer courses, e.g., undertaking a project or research work that will benefit the Association/Neuroscience Nursing. N.B. - Fees for post-registration courses will not be paid, but additional expenses (such as for research) will be considered.
  • Applicants must submit their request on the relevant application form to the BANN President.
  • The BANN Executive Board will decide the amount of money to be awarded; this may not be the full amount requested by the applicant. Each application will be considered on individual merit and according to funds available for the year.
  • Applicants awarded a grant must submit a written report/copy of the paper presented to the BANN President within four months of completion. This will be considered for publication in the Association’s journal “Headlines”. If the author has handed copyright to any other party, permission to reproduce the work in Headlines must be obtained by the author.
  • The grant will be paid after the applicant provides proof of attendance on the course, proof of expenses (original receipts) and on fulfilment of point 6 above.
  • The BANN Executive Board may consider giving the grant in advance in some circumstances. The applicant will then be required to sign a written contract to confirm that money will be paid back to the Association if it is not used for the stated purpose within a specified time.
  • The applicant must make acknowledgement of financial support by the BANN in any written or verbal presentation.
  • Grants will not be paid more than once a year to the same individual.
