Postgraduate Research Support Fund 

All postgraduate students within the College of Arts and Law are eligible to apply for funding to help with 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

How to apply 

To apply, current students are asked to complete the application form.

Further information can be found in the guidance notes.

The next round of applications is open from Monday 22 January to noon on Monday 19 February 2018.
