 Ph.D. students may be able to receive some financial support for their participation in the programme. This support will include Conference Registration and some support for accommodation.  There is no support available for travel; this is the student’s responsibility. All students are required to pay a reduced fee of £50 (or $80 US) in the first instance. Those who do so will then be considered for bursaries to cover the remainder of the registration fee and two nights accommodation on campus. Bursaries will be limited.

All available funds for US students have been allocated.

Conference support for UK Ph.D. students:

Financial support up to 12 UK students is to be underwritten by the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness. Support will cover the conference fee and the cost of accommodation in Queen's Elms Halls for 2 nights.

To apply for support, applicants should state clearly in no more than one page of A4 text (11 point font), the title of their thesis; the year of study, what they hope to gain from attendance at the conference and why the conference is likely to be of relevance to their studies. Applications should be sent to with 'application for support' as the title of the message.

Students who receive support must stay in the university housing at the Elms.

Student applications for conference support should be submitted as soon as possible.  Students will then need to complete their registration (including paying the reduced registration fee) and accommodation information within 15 days after the funding decision.  

All  conference participants must submit an Abstract with their registration. Conventional abstracts are not required. What we do require is a statement of your interests and background. Abstract submission is part of the Registration process.
