CoR Legacy Fund


The College of Radiographers (CoR) Legacy Fund has been established following receipt of a generous donation and is used to support two areas of work.

Part 1: Overseas Conference Grant

This grant is available twice annually and supports a qualified member of the Society of Radiographers based in the United Kingdom, or a small team of members, to travel overseas to present the findings of their research and/or service evaluation as an oral paper at an international conference.

Successful applicants also agree to prepare an article for publication in Imaging and Therapy Practice on their experience, and to publish the findings of their work in Radiography.

Applications for funding to the value of £1,000 will be considered although, for exceptional applications, more may be available.

There are two grant calls a year, one in April and one in October, with one successful grant allocation in each round. The deadline for applications will be 5pm on the last Friday of April, and 5pm on the first Monday of October each year.

Criteria for applications

Radiographers* wishing to be considered for this grant must:

  • Have been in continuous membership with the Society of Radiographers for a minimum of two years at the date of application for the grant
  • Hold current registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
  • Be prepared to act as an ambassador for the Society and College of Radiographers during the conference visit and at all times in relation to the receipt and use of the grant.
  • Successful individuals will be required to sign and adhere to the terms of reference for representing the Society and College of Radiographers.

NB Unfortunately, we are unable to fund applicants who have previously received overseas conference grant funding.

*This grant is also available to educators who are non-members of the Society wishing to present radiography-related research.


Those wishing to apply for the grant are required to complete the application form and submit this alongside a short CV (for each applicant if applying as a team) and a manager’s letter of support by the deadline in April or October.

The application must include detailed anticipated costs, covering travel, accommodation, subsistence, and other anticipated expenditure.

NB Funding will not be released until notification has been received from the conference organisation committee confirming that the abstract has been accepted for presentation.

Successful individuals will be required to sign and adhere to the terms of reference for representing the Society and College of Radiographers.


Part 2: Eponymous Lecture

The Legacy Fund will also support an invited speaker to deliver one of the College of Radiographers eponymous lectures.

A recommendation will be made by the College Board of Trustees (CBoT) in relation to an overseas speaker.

The grant for this invited speaker will cover travel and accommodation costs at the discretion of CBoT.
