Scope of the Bursary

The Bursary is intended to support the research aspects of an applicant's programme of study.

The scope of an applicant's research may be on any aspect of Folklore Studies broadly defined, and may be conducted at any university in the United Kingdom. The Bursary may be used for assistance in the conduct of research such as:

  • costs of transport to a place of field research whether the location is inside or outside the United Kingdom, or
  • maintenance while conducting research in the field.

Other needs may be considered at the discretion of the Society's Post-Graduate Bursary Committee. Requests for assistance in attending a conference at which the applicant will present a paper on his or her research may also be considered. The value of the Bursary will vary according to the needs of the applicant's research project, but should not exceed £1,000. The Bursary is for a period of one year or less.
