Engagement Training Bursary

From public speaking to exhibition design, stakeholder mapping to blogging, there are so many skills for engagement that could help you share pharmacology with the world. 

The Engagement Training Bursary, administered by the Engagement Committee, offers up to £500 to support our members to develop or improve their engagement skills through in-person or online training opportunities. 

Who can apply?

To be eligible for this bursary, you must have been a Society member for a minimum of 12 months, and be able to demonstrate how you plan to use the skills developed through this training.

How may funds be used?

Funds may be used to cover registration fees for events and up to 50% of travel and accommodation costs associated with attendance (or up to 75% in the case of undergraduate members).  Reasonable requests for funding to cover other aspects to facilitate attendance and participation will be considered by the committee on a case-by-case basis. 

 Additional information
