This ASCN UK fund was set up in 2010 with the unique purpose of offering financial support for its members for any stoma care specialist professional educational.

The Jean Preston fund enables any full member of ASCN to apply for an Education Grant which can be used towards developing their personal knowledge or service to patients with a stoma.

The Fund has historically been based solely on donations, although starting in 2017, a percentage of the Annual Conference profit will be added to this fund as an acknowledgement of the challenges facing stoma care nurse and practitioner funding.

Funding is available for conference registration fees, travel to conference, accommodation at conference and full funding for all of these.

Please note that only ASCN UK members can apply for the JPF. If you are not a member, please click here to register today.

Please be advised that by submitting an application, this does not guarantee funding will be available. If successful, full funding may not be available due to limited funding available. Funding may be either a contribution or full funding at the discretion of ASCN UK.
