All PhD students who are members of the RES (regardless of their nationality) and are not in full time employment can apply to the Royal Economic Society for financial support to assist with attendance at the RES Annual Conference.
A fixed budget will be allocated between all applicants to this scheme and therefore no guarantee can be given in advance about the level of support for individual applicants. In recent years the scheme has been able to cover the conference fee and accommodation cost for all applicants, and offer some compensation for travel costs. The level of support will also depend on whether the applicant is presenting a paper or not. Application for assistance should be made after the conference via a claim form which is available on this page.
Applicants will also be required to supply original receipts to support the claim and payments will be made by direct bank transfer.
Any queries on eligibility should be addressed to the Conference Secretary.
