We are offering a number of postgraduate bursaries this year, thanks to the generosity of Elsevier, Dr Anna Barker from the University of Leeds, the BSC and its journal ‘Criminology & Criminal Justice’. Each bursary will cover the full conference fee for one postgraduate student and accommodation for three nights (3th to 5th July 2018 inclusive). There is one application process for all bursaries.

The BSC Postgraduate Committee will choose bursary winners, with input from the BSC Executive Committee. We will base our selection on your answers to the questions below and on your paper’s originality and potential contribution to knowledge or practice.

To apply for a bursary you must submit:
- Your completed bursary application form
