Bursary Scheme

Bursary Scheme for Full, In-Training and General Members

The DFP committee are pleased to be able to offer a number of bursaries to attend the Annual DFP Conference.  These are open to all members of the DFP and are to attend the full three day conference.

Bursaries will cover the conference fees; however, accommodation and travel costs will not be covered.  Applicants would be required to arrange cover for their accommodation and travel costs.

The DFP intend for the bursaries to offer colleagues support and the opportunity for attending the conference which may contribute to aspects of their professional and/or academic development. It is not the DFP committee’s intention to substitute any responsibility from an employer to support their continuing professional development, but to offer the bursary in cases where the member does not have the financial resources despite trying to secure this.

Ensure that you read the Eligibility Criterion for the bursary.

In order to make an application for a bursary, candidates should complete the bursary application form.

The completed form should then be returned on or after 1st February 2012.

Bursaries will be allocated based on the order in which they are received and any applications received prior to the above date will not be considered.  All applications should be submitted electronically to Annjanette Wells.

Please note that if you are successful in obtaining a bursary and then fail to attend the conference without evidence of acceptable extenuating (non-work related) circumstances, then you will be charged the cost price for the place.  This is to avoid the DFP paying colleagues who then choose simply not to attend.  This incurs an unrecoverable cost to the divisional membership.  This has unfortunately happened on recently DFP funded training events, so we are seeking to avoid this.

We look forward to receiving your applications.
