SPSIG student bursaries

The Spirituality in Psychiatry Special Interest Group have made available some funds to subsidise the attendance of medical students at their day conferences.

The bursary is applied for on the following application form, submitted to sigs@rcpsych.ac.uk.

This bursary is a one-off partial payment for a specific SPSIG conference, paid from SIG funds.

Students should apply using their academic, NHS or hospital trust email address and stating their course of study, their institution and which year they are now in.

The bursary is primarily intended for medical students. Preference will be given to student associates of the RCPsych.

Consideration will be given to students of other subjects in the fields of mental health and spirituality, or low paid or voluntary mental health workers, on a case by case basis.

A higher level of bursary is available for those willing to help out practically on the day e.g. by passing the roving microphone during discussions.

The SPSIG executive committee will decide who receives the bursary, their decision is final.
