We run a Postgraduate Events Funding Competition annually. It is aimed at facilitating Postgraduate attendance at academic events such as Postgraduate conferences, Postgraduate symposia, Postgraduate workshops and Postgraduate seminar series. It covers expenses such as travel and accommodation, fee waivers and bursaries for Postgraduate delegates. Other expenses will also be considered, provided they can be shown to benefit Postgraduate students.

There are two submission deadlines annually. The next deadlines are 1 November 2016 and 1 April 2017. Two awards of a maximum of £300 each will be made to the successful candidates. To apply please download the BAFTSS-PG-Funding-Application 2016_2017 form.


  • The award is available to BAFTSS members only. Applicants must be the main organisers of the relevant Postgraduate events and must be currently enrolled as PhD or (taught/research) MA students at a British University. Applicants must provide a valid Student Identity Number on the application form.
  • Publicity for the event should carry the BAFTSS logo and the phrase ‘organised in association with BAFTSS’. Should there be publications or other outputs derived from the event, a mention to the BAFTSS support should be made.
  • A full report, including a detailed description of how the funds were used, must be delivered to the BAFTSS Executive Committee within four weeks after the end of the event.
  • Any unspent funds must be returned to BAFTSS.
