We are pleased to announce a new call offering six
small grants of £500 to fund events in the name of the Society that
bring together researchers and practitioners
2016/2017 APPLICATION ROUND NOW CLOSED
We will fund six events that correspond with the following aims of the Society:
• Enhancing our understanding of later life
• Disseminating research on ageing
• Connecting research, policy and practice
This call is to fund events that bring together researchers and
practitioners in any region of the UK to share and disseminate research
findings. Where possible events should be held in 2017.
The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis and judged
according to their fit with the BSG aims outlined above. Preference will
be given to events that are organised in response to this call rather
than previously planned events, however, we are happy to part fund
events with other sponsors.
What you spend the grant on is up to you as long as it directly
supports the BSG tagged event you are organising: room hire, presenter
expenses, lunch and refreshments are the obvious basic requirements. All
we ask is that you clearly market your event as a BSG event and keep a
list of who attends so that we can invite non-members to join us in the
future! We would also ask that you disseminate your event through the
Society – this might be as a blog, a video or a report within
All you need to do is complete a short application form and budget and submit them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
An application form is attached and is also available at: http://www.britishgerontology.org/small-events
The deadline for receipt of the application form and budget is 30th November 2016. Applicants must be BSG members.
