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 busraries that can help support postgraduates with their research. We have 3 rounds of bursaries each year. 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).
We offer a range of popular bursaries to help support professional development, including attendance at conferences (both international and domestic), workshop/training events, and study visits. We also offer standalone travel bursaries which can help towards travel costs to these events highlighted. You will find more information about each of these below.
Please note: You are eligible to submit several applications per round; however, only one bursary can be awarded per category, per round (e.g., one international bursary and one travel bursary). You are, however, eligible to apply again in a subsequent round, but your previous successful bursary application will be taken into account. It is also important to note that if bursaries are not claimed in the allocated time period (3 months), this will be taken into account with any future applications you make.
Further, 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). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
