Research & Travel Funds
Support for attendance at conferences, travel to gather data or to study source material essential for research and help with extra specialist tuition. Computer and software purchases are not currently supported.
Eligibility: All graduates and postgraduates within their nine terms of research. There is no means test. You may apply more than once in any academic year, providing your supervisor will support your applications.
Timing: Decisions on travel and research funding are made case by case. You need to provide clear evidence of costs. You may apply in advance or retrospectively.
Procedure: Contact the Tutorial Office for an application form and have your supervisor add his or her written support then return the form to the Tutorial Office. You may include all categories of expense, from visa fees though ground travel, airfares, registration fees and costs of accommodation and board. You are also expected to make applications to other sources (if available). Currently the Committee will grant up to 60% of your shortfall after other grants are taken into account. There is an upper limit for each student per academic year (1st October to 30th September) of £750.
Awards are paid retrospectively and receipts are required.
