Bursaries for BNS meetings

Ten bursaries are available each year to support attendance at BNS meetings. Each bursary has a maximum value of £200 and can be used to pay for the cost of second class travel and accommodation. 

The bursaries are open to predoctoral students (PhD students and psychology assistants) and post-doctoral research fellows who don't have direct access to funding. Priority will be given to applicants who are presenting either a poster or a spoken paper. Priority will also be given to BNS members, but non-members are also encouraged to apply, irrespective of their country of origin. Applications must be supported by a BNS member. Predoctoral students (including psychology assistants) may only apply for one bursary.
