Postgraduate student travel prize

The Society for the Study of Human Biology (SSHB) is offering financial support (£1000) for postgraduate students to attend and present at international conferences.


The scheme is open to student members of the Society who have been awarded an undergraduate degree and are currently studying for a masters, doctorate, or other postgraduate degree. Applicants must be based in any organisation that undertakes research into human biology, including (but not confined to) universities, museums, and NGOs. Applicants who are not members of the Society are permitted to apply for membership at the same time as they submit their application. Become a member here.

How to apply

The application is to be written and submitted by the person carrying out the research (this could be a Postgraduate student or Researcher). To apply please complete and submit the below application form.

Applications will be assessed in relation to the quality of the work submitted, and the relevance of the topic to the aims and scope of the SSHB. Applications which fail to adhere to the guidelines will not be considered. All applications will be reviewed by referees appointed by the SSHB committee.
