A recent beneficiary writes:

I was delighted to be awarded a grant from the BSC which enabled me to attend and present at the international seminar ‘Retail crime: International evidence and prevention’ in Stockholm. The event was co-sponsored by The Swedish Retail and Wholesale Council (Handelsrådet) and the BSC. It was a fantastic event facilitating the sharing of ideas between academia and industry, and I am hugely grateful to the Society for the opportunity to be part of it, and to the organizer Associate Professor Vania Ceccato.”

The small print

The first recourse for funding should be to your own institution (where applicable) and applicants should show that they have sought full or partial funding from their organisation. Applications will not be considered for less than £100. The maximum grant is £1,000. Eligibility Grants are available for the dissemination of research, at post-doctoral or equivalent level. Postgraduate students are eligible to apply. Applicants must be members of the British Society of Criminology. Awards will not be made retrospectively: this means that the work for which support is requested must not have commenced before the award is announced. There is an expectation that the event will be charged. The proposers are required to return the monies when the income generated equals or exceeds the amount the BSC has given. The proposers are expected to return 40% of the profit. In the case of an event not being charged the proposers are to put forward a case explaining the rationale for this.
