Annual Conference Student Bursaries

The Society offers up to five bursaries to postgraduate students researching the post-Reformation Catholic history of the British Isles to contribute to the cost of attending the CRS Annual Conference held in July. The value of a bursary will be equivalent to half the cost of attending the conference (excluding travel costs).

Applications are invited from full or part-time students registered for higher degrees in any recognised institution in Britain or overseas. Applicants do not have to be members of the CRS.

Recipients of bursaries are expected to deliver a Short Communication on the subject under study. The purpose of a Short Communication is to place before the conference a piece of research which may not justify expansion to a full-scale paper. It is a form which lends itself to readjustments of earlier assessments, or the presentation of a new and significant piece of evidence.
