Burnby Memorial Bursary
This British Society for the History of Pharmacy offer a Bursary of £500 annually to a student at, or associated with, a School of Pharmacy or other higher educational establishment.

The winner of the Bursary gave a 20 minute presentation at the Annual Spring Conference of the British Society for the History of Pharmacy. This was based on an original piece of work on a topic relating to the History of British Pharmacy.

A portion of the Bursary was used as a contribution towards the conference fee.

Having run for its intended 10 years, this Bursary scheme is now closed.
