BACP bursaries and award schemes aim to encourage research that helps us develop the evidence-base for counselling and psychotherapy.

Our PhD studentships provide financial support for students undertaking PhD research on topics related to BACP’s strategic aims. The bursaries will cover part-time PhD fees and some expenses up to £7,500 an academic year, for a maximum of five years.

This year we’ll be funding two doctoral bursaries for:

  1. Furthering the evidence base for humanistic therapies
  2. Counselling in care homes

For full details, including eligibility criteria, project briefs and an application form, please see Apply for a PhD studentship.

The application deadline is noon on 30 April 2018. Interviews will take place on 22 and 23 May.
