A condition of this bursary award is that you act as an ambassador of the LCNUK during the WCLC. 

After the conference you will be expected to prepare a short report on your experience of attending the 20th WCLC, update us on how your presentation was received, share any learning/take home messages from the WCLC and discuss how the bursary helped you – this will be collated into a report from other bursary recipients and published in our newsletter.
