all about our

PsyPAG Bursaries

PsyPAG awards a number of bursaries to help psychology postgraduates attend conferences and other events, both at home and abroad. All psychology postgraduates registered at a UK institution are eligible to apply for our bursary funds. We are also offering Research Grant bursaries that can help support postgraduates with their research. 

We offer a range of popular bursaries to help support professional development, including attendance at conferences (both international and domestic), workshop/training events, research grants and study visits. We also offer standalone travel bursaries which can help towards travel costs for domestic conference bursaries.

Deadline for the next round of bursaries closes in

PsyPAG Annual Conference Bursaries

In addition to the bursaries above, we offer up to 20 bursaries of up to £100 to support the associated costs delegates wishing to present and attend the PsyPAG Annual Conference. In addition, we are also offering one bursary of up to £300 for students based at international institutions. This is a separate application process specific to our annual conference. These funds can be used to fun registration, accommodation and travel costs only.

 

Details regarding our 2019 Annual Conference will be announced shortly.

Application information

The deadlines for each round are: 10th February, 10th June and 10th October. Applications will be reviewed by the bursary sub-committee after each deadline and all applicants will be notified if they have been successful within 6-7 weeks. Successful International Conference, Study Visit and Research Grant bursary applicants are required to write an article for the PsyPAG Quarterly (Note: Successful Domestic Conference, Workshop and Travel applicants are exempt from this condition).

 

All our PsyPAG bursaries can be offered retrospectively – in other words, you are eligible to be considered for a bursary when the event has already happened (e.g., you would be eligible for an international bursary within the June round, even if you attended the conference in May).

 

Applicants are welcome to submit an application to more than one bursary category per round. Please note however, that an applicant cannot be awarded two bursaries in the same round (unless the two awards are domestic and travel bursaries combined).
