Annual Prizes and Awards

Robert Kerwin Bursaries

Professor Rob Kerwin was instrumental in advising, supporting and acting as mentor for numerous people early in their careers in psychopharmacology. To commemorate this, the Council of the British Association for Psychopharmacology introduced annual bursaries in 2008, to be awarded in his name.

The bursaries are available to individuals who are current Members of BAP and have held their membership for a minimum of 6 months. Applicants will be studying for a higher degree (PhD, MD) or will have been awarded such a degree in the last 3 years. Each bursary covers travel expenses and the registration fee for an international conference (excluding the BAP summer meeting), together with subsistence. The conference could be held in the UK, but should be international, and will take place between July of the current year and June of the next year.

Bursary recipients are expected to attend the BAP Summer Meeting and also write an article for the BAP Newsletter.


The closing date is: 30th April 2017
