The BSG supports a number of small events each year through their small grants scheme. The call for applications goes out in Autumn each year. All events are asked to promote the BSG at the event and to write a report for the BSG blog or Generations Review following the event. Funding of up to £500 is usually provided. Please see these forums for feedback and information about previous events.

We are pleased to announce a new call offering six small grants of £500 to fund events in the name of the Society that bring together researchers and practitioners

2016/2017 APPLICATION ROUND NOW CLOSED – NEXT ROUND EXPECTED AUTUMN 2017

We will fund six events that correspond with the following aims of the Society:

• Enhancing our understanding of later life

• Disseminating research on ageing

• Connecting research, policy and practice

This call is to fund events that bring together researchers and practitioners in any region of the UK to share and disseminate research findings.  Where possible events should be held in 2017.

The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis and judged according to their fit with the BSG aims outlined above. Preference will be given to events that are organised in response to this call rather than previously planned events, however, we are happy to part fund events with other sponsors.

What you spend the grant on is up to you as long as it directly supports the BSG tagged event you are organising: room hire, presenter expenses, lunch and refreshments are the obvious basic requirements. All we ask is that you clearly market your event as a BSG event and keep a list of who attends so that we can invite non-members to join us in the future! We would also ask that you disseminate your event through the Society – this might be as a blog, a video or a report within Generations Review. 

What next?

All you need to do is complete a short application form and budget and submit them to: louise.mccabe@stir.ac.uk

An application form is attached and is also available at:

The deadline for receipt of the application form and budget is 30th November 2016.
