Arts & Humanities Mobility Scholarship

Due to the ongoing situation around Covid-19, the Scholarship Committee has made the decision to pause this funding scheme until further notice. Applications for Scheme 1 can still be submitted to and the Clerk will hold these on file until we are able to resume activities and support travel once again. We apologies for any inconvenience caused.

This funding opportunity is available to support travel in connection with study or research for both undergraduate and postgraduate taught students in the College of Arts. Students may apply for up to £500 in each scheme. We anticipate being able to support around six projects in each scheme per year.


Scheme 1: Open until further notice (we will keep your application on file until we are able to resume this funding scheme and review applications).

Scheme 2: Date to be announced in summer 2020.
