This bursary funds two students to attend the Costume Society's annual three-day conference. It is open to UK full-time and part-time students at a graduate and postgraduate level engaged in research directed towards the presentation of a dissertation or thesis.

Ideally, the research should either reflect a theme of that year's symposium or be an object-based research project on the history of dress.

The bursary offers full attendance at the conference inclusive of accomodation, meals and all visits and activities in the conference programme, but does not cover transport to and from the symposium.
