The grant is to support your attendance at the Annual Scientific Meeting in order to promote your research and/or develop your career goals.

You are fully responsible for the appropriate use of the grant with regard to the terms of your conduct, conference attendance and travel arrangements, and we must be notified if for any reason the grant is not used appropriately. We have the right to ask for refunding of the grant if we feel that it has been used inappropriately.

We are not liable, except for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or our fraud, to any third party for any matter arising in connection with the work or travel funded by our grant and the publication of the results thereof.

We encourage the promotion of our organisation, but you must obtain our explicit written consent each time you wish to make any statements about, or references in any documents or other medium to, our grant support or our organisation or use our name and logo.

You are responsible for ensuring that the information you supply as part of your application is correct and up-to-date. Should you provide fraudulent information, your application may be invalidated and we may require that your return your funding.

You understand that the maximum funding amount is final and BSH will not disburse anything in excess of this amount.

Your photo and a copy of your report may be published in our communications materials, including our website and social media platforms. We will proofread and make any minor grammar or spelling corrections as required. If edits beyond minor corrections are required, we will contact you for approval. You may request that we do not publish confidential information or withdraw your consent for publication at any time.
