Early-Career Conference Bursary Scheme

Formerly known as the Postdoctoral Conference Bursary Scheme, this Research Board bursary scheme is designed to support the work of early career psychologists.

Conference bursaries are available to support early-career psychologists in the UK to attend any academic conference, either in the UK or internationally, relevant to the applicants work. 

Each bursary consists of up to £250 (UK) or £500 (international) to contribute towards the costs of registration and travel to attend the full conference.

All applicants must be members of the Society.

There are two rounds of the scheme each year:

  • The April round is open from 1 January and all applications must be received by 1 April

  • The October round is open from 1 July and all applications must be received by 1 October

For 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 a link to the new electronic application form, can be obtained from the Board Administrator once a particular round has opened.
 

Please note: for the purpose of the bursary scheme, an early-career psychologist is defined as a person who is employed in a UK HEI and is within ten years of the completion of their doctoral degree in psychology.
