Research Training Funding

The Faculty offers two sources of funding to support FASS research students' training:

  • The Postgraduate Conference Presentation Grant provides financial support for PhD students who are giving presentations at conferences in the UK and overseas.  A total of £30,000 is available for 2016-17, and there is a limit of £250 per award for UK conferences, £400 for conferences in Europe, and £500 for conferences in the rest of the world.
  • The Postgraduate Research Skills Training Fund provides PhD student with grants of up to £500 to cover costs (eg accommodation, registration and travel) directly incurred by participation in a training event.  The training undertaken must provide skills that are necessary to the successful completion of your doctoral project and that are not delivered through the FASS Research Training Programme.
