Funding for current research postgraduates
The Graduate School has a number of funding opportunities of its own which are open to current postgraduate students or research staff at the University to support development opportunities including conference attendance, travel to centres of excellence and the development of innovative new training provision.
None of the Graduate School travel prizes/awards are given retrospectively. The conference/travel date must be after the deadline of your chosen travel prize.
All travel prize/award applications must be submitted by hard copy or in MS Word or PDF format to the nominated email address for the relevant prize. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure the correct format is used.
