Want to attend Pop Group but struggling financially? There are a number of ways that we can provide financial assistance, thanks to the generous contributions of our sponsors.


PhD students

The Fisher Memorial Trust provides a limited number of bursaries for PhD students, of £250 each, to assist with the costs of registration and attendance at PopGroup53. To apply, contact Prof. Adam Eyre-Walker, copying in Professor Brian Charlesworth (a.c.eyre-walker@sussex.ac.uk AND Brian.Charlesworth@ed.ac.uk) with a short email (200 words), making a case for why you should be awarded a bursary.

UPDATED! Deadline for applications is NOW 22nd November 2019 (5pm) UPDATED!

Additionally, the Genetics Society also offers grants to Undergraduates, Masters, PhD students, and postdoctoral scientists within three years of their PhD viva. To find out more information, please click here. You will need to be a member of the Genetics Society to apply for these awards.


Assistance with childcare

We recognise the importance of childcare provision at conferences and are committed to supporting attendance of delegates with young children who would otherwise be unable to attend. While we are unable to provide on site childcare services, a limited number of bursaries are available to support individuals with young children – please contact us if you would like to apply.
