Postgraduate Research Support Fund 

Each year, all postgraduate students within the College of Arts and Law are eligible to apply for funding for support towards conference expenses or research expenses as part of the Postgraduate Research Support Fund. 

The funding can cover anything from travel and accommodation to photocopying and books, and has proved to be a real help to our past and current doctoral researchers.

Applications are prioritised in the following way:

  1. Applications that demonstrate significant added value to the applicant’s degree (e.g. giving a paper at a conference of international standing, the use of an archive that is of intrinsic value to the student’s research project etc)
  2. Applications from students presenting a paper at a conference
  3. Applications for conference attendance only

Please note that applications for funding in the 2013-14 academic year will be open until Friday 2nd May. 

How to apply

The final round of funding closes on Friday 2nd May.
