Conference Bursaries

BSECS is glad to be able to support scholars to attend this conference. Thirteen bursaries are available, each comprising £100 plus an invitation to attend the BSECS Annual Conference Dinner, at which their prize will be formally announced. Prizes will be awarded to graduate students whose papers have been accepted for the Conference, on the basis of academic merit, registered for a higher degree at a higher education institution within the European Union. Previous successful applicants will not normally be eligible for a bursary.

In addition, the fees for BSECS conference registration, meals, and accommodation will be waived for up to six established scholars whose papers have been accepted. Fee waiver awards are offered to scholars from academic institutions in countries ranked as either ‘Medium’ or ‘Low’ in the most recent United Nations Human Development Index (UN HDI).

The deadline for receipt of applications is 30 November in any year.
