TaPRA is offering ten postgraduate bursaries for the 2014 TaPRA conference hosted by Royal Holloway, University of London. 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, either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in hard copy to the address below.
Applications must arrive by end of Friday 6th June 2014. Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 20th June 2014. Applicants are advised that they should not pay their conference fee (and membership for September 2014-September 2015) until they have heard the result of the competition. TaPRA will pay the bursary directly to the host university.
