Bursaries cover conference fees, one night’s accommodation, and travel (up to £150). Priority for bursary funding will be given to existing or joining SRIP members. Membership costs £40 per year (£20 per year for students) and includes a number of benefits including five issues of the Journal of Reproductive and Infant Psychology and access to an online discussion group. In awarding bursaries, preference will be given to those who are presenting (symposium, oral paper or poster) and to those who have no, or limited, funds available to support conference attendance.


To be eligible for a prize you must have already been awarded your degree. You are therefore able to apply for a conference prize in the year following the award of your degree. Prizes include a monetary award (£250 for Doctoral; £200 for Masters; £150 for Undergraduate), conference fees, conference dinner, one night’s accommodation, travel (up to £150), and one year’s SRIP membership.
