Bursaries for 2019

The Dipterists Forum holds an annual weekend course at the Preston Montford field studies centre. These courses cover selected families of flies in detail, and the 2019 course will be on the Empididae and Hybotidae. It will take place on the 15th-17th February. The Forum also has annual residential summer field meetings lasting for one week. These take place at various venues around the country, and the 2019 meeting will be based at Stirling University, Scotland on the 22nd-29th June.

We offer up to two bursaries for the Preston Montford course, and up to three for the summer field meeting. Each bursary covers half the total cost of the course or the meeting, including accommodation costs. If you would like to apply for a bursary please send your application by e-mail to the vice-chairman, Howard Bentley, jhowardbentley@gmail.com

Your application should say what you hope to gain from attending, how you would expect to contribute to the Forumís aims of the study, recording and conservation of Diptera, and why you would benefit from financial assistance. If you are currently involved in a research programme please include brief details. We will be looking for evidence of enthusiasm and interest in flies. Preference may be given to those who have not received a bursary previously. Applications should not exceed 300 words. Successful applicants will be expected to write a short account of their experience afterwards, and this will be published in the Forumís Bulletin.

Applicants must be members of the Dipterists Forum. The closing dates for applications are: 30th November 2018 for Preston Montford; 28th February 2019 for the field meeting. If you would like further details of what is involved in these meetings please send a request to the e-mail address above.
