CSSAH Postgraduate fund 2023/24

The College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities has set aside funding in 2023/24 for bursaries for postgraduate research students who do not have access to other funds (i.e. self-funded primarily). The maximum allocation will be for £250 per PGR for year. PGRs can apply more than once, but only to a maximum of £250 over the course of the year. 

  • The fund for 2023/24 has now closed and no further applications will be accepted. Details of the fund for 2024/25 will be posted on this page in September 2024.

The fund is available for financial assistance to present at conferences (including conference fees, travel and accommodation); training to support research and travel for data collection. The fund does not cover costs of downloads or reproductions or proof reading.

Applications must spell out related costs and have supporting documentation. Note that the PGR Fund does not cover costs of downloads or reproductions, proof reading, etc.

Students must apply by the 26th of each month; applications are then considered by a panel by the start of the next month. Except for August and September, note that awards are not retrospective and must be submitted in good time (ideally 2 months ahead) for events or activities proposed. It is essential that applicants have a supporting reference from their supervisor/s for any applications.
