CAHPR Conference Bursary

In 2018, the Council for Allied Health Professionals’ Research allocated funding to support its members in presenting their research at conferences.  

We hope that these funds will assist in the dissemination of Allied Health Professionals’ research, as well as offering members invaluable networking and information-sharing opportunities.  

We are keen to encourage AHP researchers, clinicians and students to submit their work to appropriate conferences, with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of representation for our membership. This conference bursary is primarily aimed at early career researchers.

Funding is provided through a competitive bursary scheme.  AHP applicants may request a maximum of £400 to support attendance at an International conference or £200 for a National conference. A separate award, up to a maximum of £150, may be given to pre-registration students.

Successful applicants should acknowledge the support of the CAHPR formally on their presentation or poster and will be asked to submit a report and photograph within four weeks of the activity that will be placed on the CAHPR website. 


All members of CAHPR hubs, who meet the following criteria, are encouraged to apply;

  • Applicants may be students, clinicians or researchers and must be registered with the HCPC (unless applying for the student award).
  • Early career researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • The applicant needn’t be the first author on the abstract, but should be the presenting author at the conference.
  • Although applications to the scheme are strongly encouraged at the point of abstract submission, applicants must provide proof that their work is accepted for poster or oral presentation before payment will be made.
  • This bursary is intended to cover conference attendance between August and December 2018.
  • Payment will not be made without receipts.

Applications will be judged on quality as well as eligibility, since this is a competitive funding stream.


Applications must be received by 8th July 2018

They will be reviewed by independent reviewers from the CAHPR joint hub project committee. Applicants will be notified of results by 31st July 2018. 

To apply, please complete the application form at the foot of this page, along with the following:

  • A recent CV
  • A copy of the abstract that has been submitted, along with proof of acceptance where possible.  Proof of acceptance can be submitted after the application if the outcome is pending, but funding will only be awarded to applicants who’s abstracts have been successful
  • After the conference, applicants will be asked to provide receipts for the conference
  • Please return all completed application forms to
