PPWG – PhD conference/workshop participation bursaries

The PPWG has been allocated some funding for PhD bursaries to attend conferences or workshops throughout the next 11 months. These bursaries are in the first place to support with travel and accommodation expenses. We welcome applications from PhD students who would like to be supported to participate in any conference or workshop within the remit of the BISA-PPWG (https://bisappwg.org/history/).

• Bursaries are available to current PhD students who are also members of BISA, who do not have support from their institution or a research grant.
• Applicants must have papers accepted for presentation.
• The bursary application must be accompanied by a reference from the supervisor.
• No applicant will be supported for more than one conference/workshop.

Applications should be made by the 8th of March 2017.

Please supply the following information:
1 Student Name and institution/ email contact
2 Confirmation of current BISA membership
3 Title of paper
4 50 word paper abstract/summary
5 note of support from supervisor, which should introduce the applicant, detail the applicants academic record and commitment, make the case for funding and make the case for the value of participation.

Please email applications to BISAPPWG@JISCMail.ac.uk
