The School of Psychology recognises that many staff have caring responsibilities outside of work and that the need to maintain these whilst attending conferences can be financially challenging, for example due to the need to pay for childcare on-site at the conference. In light of this, the School of Psychology provides Family Support Awards for Conference Attendance for its own staff and postgraduate students. 

The award is available to both men and women with caring responsibilities (including, but not limited to, childcare).  Maximum grant per applicant is £250.
