Armourers and Brasiers' Travel Grants open for applications

Tue, 08 January, 2019

We are now inviting applications for the 2019 Armourers and Brasiers’ Travel Awards in partnership with The Welding Institute.

The City of London Livery Company, dating back to 1322, supports education and research into materials science and metallurgy through its annual award schemes. Through the Armourers and Brasiers Gauntlet Trust, the company is offering travel grants of £500 - £1000 to assist towards travel and subsistence.

The aim of the grant is to allow post graduate students, undertaking studies in materials joining and structural integrity, to attend an international conference relevant to their studies. Attendance at the conference should endow the student with a beneficial academic and networking experience.

Recipients of a travel grant will be required to submit a report (Minimum of 1000 words) or give a short presentation highlighting the learning outcomes gained from the activity for which they have utilised the award.

If you think you (or someone you know) are eligible for one of these grants, please complete an application form along with an endorsement from your employer or academic supervisor to explain how the grant will support your learning and development.

Application forms can be found on The Welding Institute website and should be emailed to or posted to TWI Awards, Professional Affairs Group, TWI Ltd, Granta Park, Cambridge CB21 6AL.

The closing date for entries is Saturday 31st March 2019. For more information, please Contact us.
