Association of Respiratory Nurse Specialists conference bursary

ARNS supports applications for assistance towards course fees for members and non-members. As a member you can also apply for a bursary towards attending a respiratory conference or the purchase of books, to support your learning:

  • It should be made clear in the application form how the individual hopes to improve the care of their patients by attending the course/conference
  • All forms must be completed fully before submission
  • We allocate a total of £5,000 for a twelve month period for at least 8 bursaries
  • Bursaries can only be awarded for a maximum of 50% of the cost of the course/conference
  • The average bursary will be for £250 but all applications will be given consideration depending on their merit
  • Bursaries will usually be paid to the institution which is providing the course or conference; if this is not practical then costs will be reimbursed only with appropriate receipts or invoices
  • Bursaries can be applied for throughout the year but will only be awarded twice a year in March and September of each year
  • Successful applicants must agree to give feed back to ARNS within 12 months, either as a poster for the conference, an article for the newsletter or a brief presentation at the annual conference
  • If you receive a bursary and fail to complete the course or attend the conference, you may be asked to pay back the bursary

Deadline for bursaries is 5th March and 5th September each year.
