Research and Education Bursary Fund

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Research and Education Bursary Fund. The fund has been created to promote our research networks and knowledge base through support to clinicians and practitioners attending research conferences relevant to research and practice in Performing Arts Medicine.

Clinicians and practitioners listed on BAPAM’s Directory, as well as students involved with our healthcare programmes (e.g. Performing Arts Medicine MSc) are welcome to bid to the fund for a contribution towards their expenses (registration, travel, accommodation).

Our first bursary recipients are Jennie Morton, who will attend the Performing Arts Medicine Association meeting in Toronto to present on Healthy Practice for Musicians, and Naomi Norton, presenting on the Student Advocate Scheme and her Master’s research project Instrumental and Vocal Teachers as Health Promotion Advocates at the British Psychological Society conference in Harrogate in April. Look out for reports from both of those events in the near future.

Payments are made retrospectively and must be supported by:

  1. An expenses claim form and valid receipt for the agreed amount.
  2. A brief written report for this News blog or our Journal (planned for 2013) with content specifically relating to a scientific finding and/or best practice recommendation arising from the conference or a copy of an abstract or speech if making a presentation.
  3. Details of Performing Arts Medicine contacts and institutions for our database and Research Links Web page.

We would also expect you to promote BAPAM and take a range of BAPAM materials for distribution to colleagues and delegates.

There is no formal application process – just contact Deborah Charnock, BAPAM Interim CEO, at deborah@bapam.org.uk.
