Member bursaries 
The British Pharmacological Society makes available bursary support for members.

Bursaries are normally restricted to a maximum of 75% of the aggregate cost of accommodation and travel for students, and 50% for non-students. The maximum award is £750. Food and beverage costs and travel incidentals will not be reimbursed. Costs will be based on the Society’s assessment of the most economical mode of travel and a reasonable standard of accommodation.

The bursary submission system will open in June 2018.
Bursary submission deadline: To be confirmed.
