In 2019, the HSA announced a new seminar series grant scheme in partnership with the Housing Studies Charitable Trust. In this grant scheme we aim to provide significant resources to enable housing researchers to host events which aim to develop theoretical and conceptual understanding of core issues in Housing Studies. We are grateful to the Housing Studies Charitable Trust for a generous donation which has enabled the creation of this seminar series competition. This seminar series grant scheme is in addition to the HSA’s existing funding scheme for events.
The first round of this scheme was open from March to May 2019. The successful applicants - Craig Gurney and Jenny Hoolachan (Cardiff University) and Kim McKee (Stirling University) - received £8000 to hold two seminars on the theme of 'reconceptualising housing tenure'. The first of these seminars was held on 13th December 2019 in Cardiff. Two blog posts have been written which cover the details of this event - you can read them here and here. The second seminar will be held in late 2020 in Stirling. These are invite-only events held with housing experts across different sectors and career stages. Information about the outputs of these seminars will be updated on this page as they become available.
Future opportunities for hosting a seminar series under this grant scheme will appear here and will be promoted through the HSA social media accounts and mailing lists so please sign up to these to stay updated.
Should you have any questions about the scheme, please contact our Events and Bursaries Officer. To find out who currently holds this role, please visit our Committee Page.
