Awards & Funding


DFP Conference Bursary Scheme 2022

The DFP committee are pleased to offer a number of bursaries to attend the Annual DFP Conference - 14 - 16 June 2022.

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.


Bursaries will be allocated based on the order in which they are received and any applications received prior to the above date or after the closing date will not be considered. Incomplete, incorrect  forms will not be accepted.

Successful bursary applicants from the previous years' conference need cannot make a consecutive application this session.

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, which incurs an unrecoverable cost to the divisional membership.

Assessment criteria

The eligibility criterion for the bursary is:

  • The applicant must demonstrate how they will secure their travel and accommodation costs.

  • The applicant must have made attempts to secure funding from their employer in the first instance.

The only way to apply for a bursary is by using the link below. No other form of application will be accepted.

The application will open on Tuesday 1 February 2022 at 9:00am

The deadline to submit a bursary application is 17:00pm on Friday 4 March 2022
