You will be notified if your application has been successful or not as soon as possible after applications close and have been reviewed. The Treasurer’s decision is final. 

Grants are paid to applicants after the event or meeting, and on receipt of an expense claim form and supporting receipts or documentation. These need to be submitted to the ESE Office within six weeks of the event or meeting. Payment to an institution can be made in advance of the meeting.

Please contact the ESE Office for further information.

Please note: It is the responsibility of the applicant to complete and submit the expense form together with the supporting receipts or documentation within the required time scale (six weeks from the date of the meeting or event). Any expense claims received after this date will not be paid and the application will be void.

Please note: We are unable to provide grants to individuals or institutions currently under sanction according to the consolidated list of financial sanctions targets in the UK, as listed here.

Applications are verified to ensure this is not the case before a grant is awarded. ESE does not permit sanctioned individuals or individuals from sanctioned institutions to attend any ESE events.
