Call for BSA Early Career Forum Regional Event Proposals 2016

BSA ECF members are eligible to apply for this fund to arrange an event relevant and/or appropriate for early career BSA members. £1,000 is available to fund the event which can be used to hire space, pay for speakers/attendees travel, refreshments and so on.

Co-funding sought from another source is looked on favourably.

Bids for the fund would need to provide a short justification and description of their proposed event, a budget, and an explanation as to how relevant for ECF members the proposed event is. As this a ‘regional event’ fund, we encourage events outside of London.

Applications should be no more than 1,000 words. Please include your name, current position and years since awarded PhD or working.

Please email all expressions of interest to events@britsoc.org.uk and address all correspondence:  BSA ECF REGIONAL EVENT 2016.

Deadline: 04 December 2015

Please note the following criteria will be used to judge applications

All applications will be considered by the membership services directors, the treasurer and the ECF convenors. A final decision is then made by the Trustees taking into consideration the feedback from the ECF convenors and based on the following selection criteria:

–       Breadth of appeal beyond the organising group

–       Centrality to sociological concerns

–       Quality of information provided

–       Geographical spread

–       Distinctiveness from previous events and institutions
