Grants and Bursaries

The Graduate College offers a range of grants and bursaries to help students during their studies.

Travel grants

**Travel Grants are currently unavailable**

This fund is intended to support the sharing and dissemination of research conducted at Lancaster, so applicants presenting a paper are prioritised. Applications can also be made by students attending the Global Experiences summer schools. See the application form 'Eligibility Criteria' for full details.

Applications can be made through the online form here (link will be added once grants are available again).

If you need to apply without using the online system, please contact us.

If you have any questions, please email
