Visits to the UK - Scheme 2

Objectives: To provide partial support for a visitor to the UK, who will give lectures in at least three separate institutions.

Eligibility:

  • The applicant is the host of the visit, who should be a mathematician based in the UK.
  • Non LMS members will need to ask an LMS member to counter-sign their application.

Criteria:

  • Applicants are responsible for making all the arrangements for the visit.
  • Normally, provisional bookings for the lectures should already have been made by the time of the application.
  • The grant is only intended as a partial contribution, and applicants are expected to approach the host institutions for funding to cover the remainder of the costs.

Value of award:  The maximum award is £1,500 towards actual expenses for:

  • Travel (international and within the UK)
  • Accommodation and subsistence (up to a maximum of £1,000 - with a limit of £100 per day).
  • In addition, the Society allows a further amount (of up to £200) to cover Caring Costs for those who have dependents.
