Postgraduate Student Conference Grants


The Postgraduate Student Conference Grants contribute towards the costs of accommodation, registration and travel of SGM Postgraduate Student Associate Members in attending one SGM Conference each year.


  1. The scheme is open to postgraduate students (PhD or Masters) who are paid-up Postgraduate Student Associate Members of SGM and currently residing in and registered for their course in a European Union country.

  2. For the Spring 2012 Conference applicants may claim for:
    • up to £25 towards travelling costs
    • a contribution of up to £60 per night towards cost of bed and breakfast accommodation
      NB the number of nights claimed must not exceed the number of days the applicant is attending the conference.
    • Associate Member early-bird registration fee
      NB Grants will not cover the extra cost of registering after the earlybird deadline and applicants will be responsible for this extra cost (£10 per day).

  3. Grants are limited to attendance at ONE only of the 2012 conferences listed below:


    • Autumn 2012 Conference, The University of Warwick, England - 3-5 September 2012
