The Social Psychology Section is offering a limited number of student bursaries to attend their Annual Conference in Leicester.

Applications are welcome until the closing date of 23 June 2017.

Who can apply?

Bursaries are only available for current students who are members of the Social Psychology Section*. Bursaries meet the cost of a single day’s registration fee (£95).

Application Process

Applications should be made in the form of a 150 word statement (attached to your email as a word document), including your BPS number to the Section Conference Officer.

The statement should include the following:

  • a brief explanation of why a bursary is needed (e.g. because of lack of funding from research council or institution)
  • why the applicant should be awarded a bursary
  • how the applicant will benefit from attending the conference

Applications should be sent by email to the Conference Officer, Dr Cordet Smart by 23 June 2017. Please write your name followed by “Social2017 Bursaries” in the email’s subject line.
