ALERT  *****COVID-19 Pandemic related Update  October 2020*****  ALERT


In these very difficult and uncertain times internationally it has become necessary for BOFAS to suspend the funding of Travelling Fellowships until further notice


Whilst applications are still open for future rounds of review we cannot give a date that these would be considered, whether they would receive funds, or acknowledge whether they would remain eligible.


We are, as a society saddened to have to withdraw this support and hope it is very temporary.  


Mr. Timothy Williams
