Support and Endorsement of Activities and Events


The HSA recognises that supporting and endorsing events and activities that contribute to its aims is a primary function for the Association and that this represents an important and effective utilisation of our resources. The HSA is therefore committed to providing appropriate support and endorsement where possible to further its aims. In 2011 we established a scheme for individuals to apply for HSA support or endorsement for their events.

The next deadline for applications is: 15 November 2020

We particularly encourage applications from early career researchers or for activities and events which support early career researchers. The lead applicant must be a current HSA member and the maximum amount available is usually £1000. The applications are assessed by a sub-committee of the HSA Executive Committee. Applications must be submitted using the official application form in order to be considered. Please also read our policy and procedures for supporting events before application. For further information or to informally discuss an application, please contact our Events and Bursaries Officer. To find out who currently holds this position, please visit our Committee Page.
