Diabetes UK Professional Conference - Funding information

There are multiple funding options available to delegates, please review the options below or contact the team for more information.

Diabetes UK conference grants

For 2018's conference, we are delighted to offer a limited number of conference grants (up to a maximum of £150 per applicant) to those who have been selected to present their abstract at the conference. These are intended to assist with the travel and accommodation requirements to attend the conference.

Application forms will be sent out with the abstract acceptance letter by the end of December 2017. The closing date for completed grant applications is Friday, 26 January 2018.

Grants will be payable, by cheque, following the conference once we have verified your attendance.

Hospital/Clinic training departments

Apply to your training department in the first instance.

Charities attached to hospitals/clinics

If a charity is attached to your hospital/clinic, check if they fund attendance to educational events and apply to them.

Pharmaceutical funding

Funding for educational conferences can be obtained via your pharmaceutical representative. Each company has a different application procedure, so do liaise with your representative on how to apply for funding.

Once you have received confirmation that your pharmaceutical representative will be able to fund all or part of your registration fee, we can accept payment through all the payment methods listed on our how to pay page.

Pharmaceutical companies cannot fund delegates to attend social events (i.e. the conference dinner).
