There will a BAFFTS Postgraduate Events Funding Competition with closing date on Wednesday, 31 July 2013, 4pm.
Applications should be submitted electronically, at email@example.com. Two awards of £250.00 each will be made to the successful candidates.
The application form is available here.
The award is available to BAFTSS members only. Applicants must be the main organisers of the relevant PG events and must be currently enrolled as PhD or (taught/research) MA students at a British University. Applicants must provide a valid Student Identity Number (SID) on the application form.
Events funded by the scheme are: PG conferences; PG symposia; PG workshops; PG seminar series. Other similar events may also be considered.
Events funded by the scheme must take place between 1 September 2013 and 28 February 2014 (applications for events taking place after 28 February 2014 should be submitted by the January 2014 deadline, as indicated below).
Aims of the Scheme
The BAFTSS contribution is aimed at facilitating PG attendance at academic events. It should be primarily utilised to cover expenses such as:
- Travel and accommodation for PG delegates.
- Fee waivers for PG delegates.
- Bursaries for PG delegates.
Other expenses will also be considered, provided they are clearly justified as benefitting PG students.
Publicity for all BAFTSS-funded events should carry the BAFTSS logo as above (click on the logo on this page to access it in higher definition) and the phrase ‘organised in association with BAFTSS’.
Should there be publications or other outputs derived from the event, a mention to the BAFTSS support should be made.
Terms and Conditions
A full report, including a detailed description of how the funds were used, must be delivered to the BAFTSS Events Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org, within four weeks after the end of the event. Any unspent funds must be returned to BAFTSS.
The next call for applications for this award will be closing on 31 January 2014.
Enquires should be addressed to the BAFTSS Treasurer, Professor Lúcia Nagib, email@example.com
