Bursaries for the Annual Meeting

A small number of bursaries are available to help unsalaried members of the Association (e.g. PhD students) to attend the Annual Meeting of the LAGB to present a paper. There are three types of bursaries available:

Best Student Abstract Bursary

The Best Student Abstract Bursary is awarded to the student member whose abstract was rated highest by our international peer review committee. The award includes:

  • Free registration for the entire conference
  • Conference dinner
  • Up to £250 reimbursement of accommodation costs
  • Reimbursement for UK-internal travel costs to and from the conference

Presenter Bursary

Presenter Bursaries are available for student/unwaged members who have had an abstract selected for presentation at the conference. The award includes:

  • Free registration for the entire conference
  • Up to £50 expenses towards accommodation/subsistence
  • Reimbursement for UK-internal travel costs to and from the conference

Attendance Bursary

Attendance Bursaries are available for student/unwaged members who submitted an abstract that was unsuccessful in being selected for presentation at the conference. These awards are only made if sufficient funds are available after the Presenter Bursaries have been awarded.  The award includes:
  • Free registration for the entire conference
  • Reimbursement for UK-internal travel costs to and from the conference


How to apply

While applicants for bursaries must be members of the Association, applications for membership may be submitted at the same time as applications for bursaries. Completed bursary applications must be received by the deadline for abstracts.

  • All abstracts should be submitted in the regular way, as detailed in the call for papers.
  • Members who also wish to apply for a bursary should email r.woods@hud.ac.uk to register their interest in a bursary from the email address they gave to the LAGB when joining the Association. Please tell us which bursar{y/ies} you would like to be considered for and whether you have access to additional funds, e.g. departmental travel scholarships.
  • Successful applicants will be notified by email by the end of May.
