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 OPEN.
We are looking for postgraduates willing to organise a day event. The BSA will provide 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.
Please complete the Application Form. All applicants must be a current BSA Member at the time of of application and the event. If you would like to become a BSA member visit our membership section for more information. The submission deadline for proposals is: Friday, 12 November 2021. Late applications will not be considered.
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
