TaPRA invites applications for this year’s ten postgraduate bursaries for the 2015 TaPRA conference, 8-10 September, to be hosted by University of Worcester.
Please note that the bursaries cover the conference fee and a year’s TaPRA membership, but not accommodation. Applicants must belong to a TaPRA Working Group, and have had a paper accepted for this year’s conference. Priority will be given to students in the final two years of their PhD, and those who have not received a previous TaPRA bursary.
Applications should include:
1. A Curriculum Vitae
2. A case for subvention (200 words)
3. Abstract for proposed paper (300 words)
4. Statement of support from supervisor or other appropriate member of HEI (e.g. Postgraduate Officer). This should be brief but indicate significance of contribution to TaPRA for the student.
Applications should be sent to Dr Hayley Bradley at hayley.bradley@manchester. ac.uk.
Applications must arrive by end of Tuesday 2nd June 2015. Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 12th June 2015. Applicants are advised that they should not pay their conference fee (and membership for September 2015-September 2016) until they have heard the result of the competition. TaPRA will pay the bursary directly to the host university.
