STOR-i Research Fund

Applications to the Research Fund will be competitive and require a full case for support and financial details. Successful applicants will be responsible for the management of the award and for the related reporting of outcomes. All students will receive full feedback on their application, whatever the outcome.

In addition to the obvious benefits that the students will receive from the award of funding, we believe that the process of applying for and managing grants will allow them the opportunity to practice and develop key skills they have previously acquired on the STOR-i programme. 

STOR-i’s Executive Committee are responsible for selecting applications to the research fund and giving feedback to applicants.
