The Kearton Conference Grant provides funding for staff to present their RMH research at national and international conferences.

The Office for Research holds three grant rounds annually. In each round, we will award:

  • Two domestic conference grants, valued at up to $1,500 each
  • One international conference grant, valued at up to $4,000

Funding for the Kearton Conference Grant is provided to the Research Funding Program through the Kearton Bequest managed by the RMH Foundation.

Conferences must begin in the months indicated within each round. Applications for conferences received outside of the dates prescribed per round will be removed from the selection process.
