PhD students and postdoctoral researchers are welcome to apply to EPS Grindley Grant to fund their travel. Applicants must be (a) registered for a postgraduate research degree and be within 4 years of initial registration (or part-time equivalent), or (b) postdoctoral workers who are within 2 years of having received their doctorate, or (c) retired EPS members.
An alternative option is Guarantors of Brain Travel Grant. These grants are intended mainly to support attendance at scientific meetings that relate directly to the applicant's research interests, and where they will be presenting their original work. Hence you need to have an oral or a poster presentation. These Travel Grants are restricted to those in doctoral training (ie. PhD students, or UK based 3-year research MD) and postdoctoral training (whether clinically qualified or not) and for work undertaken while based in the United Kingdom.
Another alternative is Psychology Postgraduate Affairs Group (PSYPAG). They award a number of bursaries to help psychology postgraduates attend conferences and other events, both at home and abroad. All psychology postgraduates registered at a UK institution are eligible to apply for their bursary funds.
Conference Drinks and Dinner
Following the talks on the first day (Wednesday May 20th), we will have drinks reception at the conference venue. This is a very good opportunity for everybody to socialise and interact with other attendees. Afterwards, we are going to have the conference dinner in one of the iconic restaurants in Canterbury (to be decided soon). Everybody is welcome to join for dinner. There will be a charge of £25 for this. We will contact those who are interested in joining the dinner separately for further information.
Registration is free. Due to limitation of space, we can register only 60 attendees and registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
