The Jen Johnson Bursary aims to fulfil the late Council Member’s desire for more members to be able to attend IBMS Congress.

It is awarded in memory of Jen Johnson, who sadly passed away in March 2016.

The bursary was launched in 2017 and provided 12 successful applicants with a grant up to £1,000 to attend IBMS Congress that year.

For IBMS Congress 2019, due to the high-level of applicants previously received, the number of bursaries has been increased to provide grants for up to 20 people.

Jen dedicated 14 years to the IBMS Council, where she served as Chair of Membership Committee and Honorary Treasurer. She was awarded IBMS Life Membership for her outstanding contribution to the organisation and profession.

Applicants are asked to submit a short statement that describes why winning the Jen Johnson Bursary and attending Congress is important to them.

Applications must be made online here and the deadline is Friday 29 March 2019.
