Postgraduate Forum Regional Event Grant

Every year, the British Sociological Association requests expressions of interest from postgraduate students interested in organising a regional postgraduate day event.

Applications are CLOSED.

Every year we seek postgraduates willing to organise a day event. The BSA provides a grant of £1,000 support for the event. Organisers are encouraged to seek a contribution from the host institution. 

Bids for the grant would need to provide a short justification and description of the proposed event, a budget, and an explanation as to how relevant the proposed event is for Postgraduate Forum members.

Applications are closed.


Please note the following criteria used to judge applications.

All applications will be considered by the membership services directors and a postgraduate convenor.  A final decision is then made by the Trustees taking into consideration the feedback from the postgraduate convenor and based on the following selection criteria:

  • Breadth of appeal beyond the organising group
  • Centrality to sociological concerns
  • Quality of information provided
  • Geographical spread
  • Distinctiveness from previous events and institutions
