BSG Awards

The BSG supports and provides a range of awards to recognise and reward work that contributes to the aims of the Society.  The BSG regularly supports nominations for the Academy of Social Sciences for leaders in the field of gerontology, it further recognises outstanding contributions to the field through the award of an annual ‘Outstanding Achievement Award.’  Doctoral students and early career researchers are supported through the conference bursary scheme, covering the costs of conference attendance for successful applicants, and through the Stirling prize which is given to the best early career poster presentation at the annual BSG conference. The small events scheme provides practical and financial support to events, such as seminars or workshops, organised by BSG members that support and contribute to the aims of BSG. Finally the Averil Osborn Award for Participatory Research provides small grants to support projects that emphasise the potential of older people to play a central role in the research process. Detailed information about each of these schemes is available in the links to the right of this page.
