Caring Supplementary Grants

Objective:

  • To enable parents and carers to attend the Society’s Annual Conference by making a supplementary contribution towards caring costs up to a maximum of £250.

Eligibility:

  • This funding option is only available to members of the Society for Applied Philosophy.

Criteria:

  • Candidates should first approach their own institution to see if any arrangements for funding caring costs are in place, before applying for the SAP grant. Where the institutions does not make such provision, the Society is willing to make a supplementary grant as a contribution to the costs.
  • Confirmation of participation and the extra reasonable costs associated with care that will be incurred is required before payment of the grant can be made.
  • Applications are considered by the Society in the March before its annual conference commences. Grants will not be made retrospectively.
  • Each case will be considered on its merits, but other things being equal, priority will be given to early career applicants and to those who have not already received support for caring costs from other sources. Priority will also be given to those whose papers have been accepted for presentation at the conference.

Application: Please submit to admin@appliedphil.org (in .docx or .rtf format) an application providing the following:

  • Your name, email address, and membership number.
  • A statement indicating: (a) why the funding is necessary; (b) that all options from the applicant's host instution have been tried/exhausted.
  • A breakdown of specific costs involved and final sum requested from the SAP.


Where funding is successful applicants will be reimbursed on submission of receipt(s) for the relevant costs to the Society’s Treasurer

The deadline for such applications is 24 March 2017
