TaPRA invites applications for this year’s ten postgraduate bursaries for the 2017 TaPRA conference, 30 August – 1 September, to be hosted by University of Salford.
Please note that 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 to 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 presenting at TaPRA for the student.
Applications should be sent to the TaPRA Treasurer, Dr Trish Reid at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications must arrive by end of Monday 12 June 2017. Successful applicants will be informed by Wednesday 14 June 2017. Applicants are advised that they should not pay their conference fee (and membership for September 2017-September 2018) until they have heard the result of the competition. TaPRA will pay the bursary directly to the host university.
