Postgraduate Forum Regional Event Funding

In 2017, fourteen postgraduate events were accepted to be held throughout the UK. These one-day events express the diversity and dynamism of the postgraduate experience. It is hoped that PGF Regional Day Events will provide a variety of events throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and that they will become an annual series in the BSA calendar.

The next call for proposals will open in September/October of this year.


All applications will be considered by the Membership Services Directors, the Treasurer and a Postgraduate Convenor.  A final decision is then made by the Trustees taking into consideration the feedback from the Postgraduate Convenor and based on the following selection criteria:

  • Breadth of appeal beyond the organising group.
  • Centrality to sociological concerns.
  • Quality of information provided.
  • Geographical spread.
  • Distinctiveness from previous events and institutions.
