This conference is wholly funded by the International Research Network for the Study of Science and Belief in Society, as part of a 3-year grant from the Templeton Religion Trust. A number of bursaries are available to help with costs that may be incurred as a result of conference attendance.

These bursaries can be used to cover costs including (but not limited to) digital access/data packages or dependent care/child care, but may not be used for hardware (e.g. laptops etc.). We will prioritise those who have the most need such as postgraduate, early career, retired, low income/unwaged, or any researcher who may not ordinarily be able to access institutional funds or equipment to attend conferences.
