Conference and Presentation (C&P) Award

Get funding help for your conference presentation from the CSP Charitable Trust.


What is the Conference and Presentation Award?

The Conference and Presentation Award provides funding for chartered, associate and student members normally residing in the UK, and is divided in to two categories:

Members wishing to contribute to one of the following:

  • A national physiotherapy-specific/relevant conference, including Physiotherapy UK
  • A physiotherapy or interdisciplinary international conference in the UK
  • A national conference or meeting relevant to, but outside of, the domain of physiotherapy
  • An overseas physiotherapy-specific/relevant or interdisciplinary international conference/meeting, including focused symposia and poster abstract presentations at the World Physiotherapy Congress.

Members who are up to Band 5 physiotherapists wishing to attend for the first time, and not present at, one of the following:

  • A national physiotherapy-specific/relevant conference, including Physiotherapy UK
  • A physiotherapy international conference in the UK
  • An overseas physiotherapy-specific/relevant conference.

If you are applying retrospectively, applications for funding should be made within 12 months of the last date of the conference.

The maximum amount awarded for a successful application in either category will be £1,500.

Full eligibility requirements, along with terms and conditions of award, can be found in the relevant application guidance documents on the Learning Hub, which will be available when applications open.
