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 anyone with caring responsibilities (including, but not limited to, childcare).  Maximum grant per applicant is £250.

For further information and a copy of the form to apply for this award, please contact the School Director of Research (Prof Louise Phillips).
