We offer a number of different funding schemes to which BAFTSS members can apply. Please note that the continuation of all funding schemes is dependent on the availability of funds, so these schemes may be subject to change.
Conference Attendance Support
The BAFTSS Executive Committee announce a new BAFTSS Funding Scheme
Conference Travel Bursaries for Early Career Researcher/Mid-Career/ Visiting/Affiliated and Independent Researchers
Amount available: 6 x £150 Conference Bursaries per annum.
Call for Applications: now open.
Deadline: 31st October 2022 (for events between that date and 31 May 2023).
3 Conference Bursaries of £150 each will be made in this first round of awards.
Rationale: At the BAFTSS 2020 AGM, the association’s membership voted in favour of an amendment to the BAFTSS constitution. The amendment instigated a new role on the Executive Committee and marked our commitment to increasing awareness and visibility of the issues faced by Early Career / Mid-Career/ Visiting/ Affiliated and Independent Researchers in precarious employment and those who are unpaid or in visiting roles.
The BAFTSS Executive Committee is now introducing a new funding scheme, which is to form part of BAFTSS’ commitment to supporting the researchers in film, television, and screen studies who are otherwise under-supported. The aim of the funding scheme is to facilitate direct representation of Researchers and Hourly Paid Lectures who are post-PhD award, yet remain without access to research funding, to be able to present their work at conferences.
The deadlines for applications for the first two years are:
Monday 31st October 2022 (for conferences prior 31st May 2023) 3 awards
Monday 27th February 2023 (for conferences prior to 31st December 2023) 3 awards
Monday 30th October 2023 (for conferences prior to 31st May 2024) 3 awards
