How much does it cost?

Assistance

Thanks to the generosity of the Honeyman Foundation there are a limited number of bursaries available of up to £100 each for the purposes of facilitating attendance at the conference. These are directed primarily at students (UG, PG) and postdoctoral fellows currently enrolled at UKHEIs studying a topic area relevant to the conference. The bursaries can be used against travel and/or accommodation only. Please note that the bursaries are offered on a first-come-first-served basis and that you will need to make contact with the conference organiser to express interest in this scheme before Wednesday, 28 September 2016, noon BST (GMT+1). In addition to be eligible you will need to:

  • Attend the conference on at least two of the three days the conference runs.
  • Provide a written communication (e-mail is acceptable) from your Institution (e.g. Head of School, PhD supervisor, Departmental Administrator) to indicate that monies are not available or are insufficient from your own Institution to assist with your travel and accommodation associated with this conference.
  • Provide receipts for expenses being claimed (each receipt will need to show you have paid, how much you have paid, that you are the recipient of the service and the vendor’s details).
  • Travel must be to/from St Andrews on dates near the conference (within period 26 Sept 2016 – 9 Oct. 2016 inclusive).
  • Accommodation should generally be in St Andrews or the immediate vicinity and cover nights falling within 1 Oct. to 4 Oct. 2016 inclusive.
