Sections Meetings and Events Support Fund

This fund is available to support Section meetings or events between the values of £100-£1000. These include (but are not limited to) enhancing existing meetings (e.g. international speaker expenses, virtual meeting software, networking tools, meeting materials) or fully supporting a new research meeting or workshop.

The fund is flexible to help our Sections to advance research, develop networks, foster the next generation of researchers and champion Psychology. This may include via virtual means during an event such as the Covid-19 pandemic.

You may submit an application at any time. Please ensure you submit an application in plenty of time ahead of your event/meeting.
