This prize of £500 is to assist excellent graduate students (MPhil or PhD) and/or independent scholars to cover the costs of attending the PSi conference. It is awarded annually for a successful proposal for the PSi conference program by a graduate student or independent scholar in the domain of practice, either as method or object of enquiry or both.
The application consists of:
- a copy of your accepted abstract;
- a statement of 500 words; and
- a one-page (one-sided) CV.
The criteria for judging the prize, and which you may wish to address in your statement, are:
- Originality - the research promises more than the incremental development of its discipline
- Significance - the proposed research has wider relevance beyond the field both scholarly and societal.
