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 Research awards and grants.

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