Conference/Fieldwork Support Fund

Postgraduate research students in the School of Social and Political Sciences can apply to this fund for support with conference and fieldwork costs.

The overall fund is relatively small and the overall ceiling for a student is £500 per academic year. Once the fund has been allocated in a given year then no further applications will be reviewed.


This fund is primarily for PhD students who do not hold an existing research and training support grant and who are in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd years of a full-time PhD programme (or equivalent for part-time students).


The fund opens on 1 September each session, and closes no later than 30 June.

1 September - 31 March
Fund open only to those students without an existing research and training support grant, including those who are currently in their Thesis-Pending year 

1 April - 30 June
Fund open to those above and to those students with a research and support grant already allocated for the year
