2023 Conference – Student Bursary

We were pleased to be able to offer a one-off student bursary to enable a small number of students to attend our annual conference. The funds for the bursary were kindly gifted to us by the former London & South East Evaluation Network to enable UKES to widen student participation in our activities.


Deadline Passed – No new applications accepted

The bursary covered the cost of a ticket to our annual conference, which is being held on 2nd-4th of October – for further information about the conference visit our 2023 Conference Hub. Each applicant is able to select the ticket type that suits them best.

Successful applicants will be expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs, where required. In the event that a selected student has already purchased their conference ticket, UKES will provide a refund for the relevant ticket and a replacement bursary-ticket.
