Hardship funding
PKSG has set aside a fixed sum of hardship funding to assist with the accommodation and UK travel costs of students selected to present a paper at the conference (please note this does not include the costs of travel to the UK). If you are accepted and are unable to secure funding elsewhere, you are warmly encouraged to apply to the PKSG Secretary (Mark Hayes m.g.hayes@durham.ac.uk) by email in the first instance, indicating your total UK travel expenses and the amount that you need to find from your own pocket. Applications should be made no later than 30 June 2015 and will then be considered as a group. If the requirement exceeds the fund available, the fund will be allocated pro-rata at the discretion of PKSG. If you are made an award, you will then need to present receipts before payment will be made, by bank transfer to a UK bank account, or otherwise by PayPal. Please note that there is no participation fee.

Post Keynesian Economics Study Group (PKSG)
PKSG was founded in 1988 by Philip Arestis and Victoria Chick with the support of the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The purpose of the Study Group is to encourage collaboration among scholars and students of Post Keynesian economics, defined broadly as a theoretical approach that draws upon the work of Keynes, Kalecki, Joan Robinson, Kaldor, Kahn and Sraffa. This approach is distinguished by the central role of the principle of effective demand (that demand matters in the long run) and an insistence that history, social structure and institutional practice be embodied in its theory and reflected in its policy recommendations. These aims broadly correspond to those of Cambridge Journal of Economics, Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, Review of Political Economy and Intervention: European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies. http://www.postkeynesian.net/index.html
