Awards could contribute towards registration, accommodation at the conference venue, or travel to the conference. You can apply for a bursary following successful submission of an abstract for the conference.

The award is open to postgraduates registered for research degrees at any UK or Republic of Ireland institution. To apply, postgraduates must be members of the BPS Cognitive Section (or have applied for membership).
