Postdoctoral Conference Bursary Scheme

This Research Board bursary scheme supports the work of postdoctoral researchers and lecturers.
 
Conference bursaries are available to support UK psychology postdoctoral researchers and lecturers to attend any academic conference, either in the UK or internationally, relevant to the applicants work. 
 
Each bursary consists of up to £150 (UK) or £300 (international) to contribute towards the costs of registration and travel to attend the full conference. Applications are open to non-Society members. 
 
There will be two rounds of scheme each year, with submission deadlines on 1 October and 1 April. 
The April round has now closed. Applications for the October round will open in July. 
  
With respect to applications submitted for the deadline of 1 April, applicants must ensure that the conference begins no earlier than 1 June and no later than 31 October.  

For applications submitted for the deadline of 1 October, applicants must ensure that the conference begins no earlier than 1 November and no later than 31 May.

Applicants may only submit one bursary application per round.

Further details, including the full criteria and an application form, can be obtained from the Board Administrator.

Note: for the purpose of the bursary scheme, a postdoctoral research/lecturer is defined as a person who is employed at a UK HEI and is within three years of the completion of their doctoral research degree (i.e. PhD) in psychology.
