History of Education Society Brian Simon bursary 2019

The History of Education Society awards the Brian Simon bursary to a postgraduate student (or up to 2 months following completion) to fund attendance at ISCHE to enable them to present their research. The bursary will cover the costs of earlybird registration, (by May 10th) accommodation and travel from the UK to Porto.

The bursary is awarded to the student that the committee feel will benefit most from attendance given the relevance of their topic to the conference.
