Care support bursaries

Do you have caring responsibilities and would you benefit from help allowing you to attend British Pharmacological Society events? If so then you might be interested in our initiative to provide financial support for caring costs. This could be used to contribute to caring costs at home or close to the meeting/event venue. 

The Society has set aside an amount to be utilised on a first come, first served basis and a maximum of up to £200 will be available per member applying. Generally, only one award will be made to an applicant per calendar year. The funds can be applied for at any time and applications will be considered on a case by case basis.

To apply you should write to Paul Tizard outlining the details of the British Pharmacological Society event that you wish to attend, how attending will benefit you, and a breakdown of the associated care costs. Applications should be made in advance of attendance and payments of awards will be made on closure of the event.

Bursaries can only be paid after an event and against a claim in the prescribed format, supported by original receipts. Claims must be presented within four weeks of the advertised closing date of the event to which they relate. Late claims will not be considered.
