Symposia and workshops

The Foundation’s symposium and workshop awards provide support for one-to-two-day meetings that consider and prompt discussion about important issues across the breadth of areas covered by sociology of health and illness. Up to £3000 is available for each award, and the Foundation funds up to eight awards each year.
