During the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of 1983 the BNMS Secretary reported that council had decided to set up Travelling Scholarships with the sum of £3,000 which it had been agreed at last year’s Annual General Meeting should be set aside to further Nuclear Medicine.
The proposal is to make these awards annually and that the recipients of the awards should report on their experiences at the following Annual Meeting, or through Nuclear Medicine Communications.

Changes over time
In 1996 the Honorary Secretary noted that it had been decided to change one of the rules for the travelling fellowship, namely that members would have to be members for twelve months in order to be eligible for an award.
In 2005, in an effort to encourage colleagues to apply for these fellowships, the Hon Secretary proposed that they be open to Associate Members who have been members for one full year.
In 2001, it had been drawn to our attention that there was discrimination in the application criteria i.e. under 35 years of age, it was agreed that this be removed.
