Science-Faith Training Courses

Applying for funding to attend Faraday Courses

Christians in Science has a limited number of bursary places available to allow CiS student members to attend courses at The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion for free. CiS will pay for your place directly. These will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis each year.

If you would like to apply for a grant to attend one of the courses you can do so in the following way:

  • Write no more than 500 words about yourself, your background (briefly), why you are applying and what you would like to get out of this course.
  • Please also include details of:
    • The specific course you would like to attend, and whether you require accommodation
    • Your university course
    • Your involvement with CiS so far
  • The courses fill up quickly, so submit your document to the CiS Secretary at secretary[email protected] in good time before the course.

Your bursary request will then be processed by a small sub-committee, who will let you know if your application has been successful. If you are successful you will be required to write a short report for the CiS committee after the course, outlining what you got out of attending.

Qualifying criteria

The CiS student bursary for the Faraday Summer School is available to:

  • Student members of CiS. You can sign up for a year’s free membership here. If your membership has lapsed, you can renew it by clicking here. Please email our membership secretary, Fran Armitage, if you have any problems.
  • Full time students studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification. We will consider applicants from non-UK universities. However, as our funding is technically for UK students, awarding of a bursary to a non-UK student is not guaranteed depending on the number of applications we have received.
  • Students who have not been awarded a bursary to attend the Faraday Summer School within the last three years. We would like to give everyone the opportunity to apply! However, you can still apply for a bursary to attend a one-day course embedded within the summer school (e.g. a science and faith communication workshop) if you have previously been at the full course within the last three years.
