The Council at the monthly meeting in June 2005 has agreed to establish the HKIMLS Training Grant Subcommittee to approve Training Grant applications submitted by members. The Grant aims to support current members with not less than 2-year of HKIMLS/HKMTA membership to pursue the recent advances in medical laboratory sciences by attending conferences, seminars, workshops, or courses related to the profession.

There will be two rounds of applications each year, one in January and the other in July. Applications will be invited in December and in June. Eligible members could apply in January or in July depending on whether the activity which he/she anticipates to attend is to be held from April to September or from October to March.
