SSHP Postgraduate Support Fund 2018-19

Thanks to a generous donation from the estate of Ms Evelyn Pullin, together with other anonymous benefactors, the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy (SSHP) is delighted to announce the establishment of a Postgraduate Support Fund for postgraduate research students.

New and existing postgraduate research students within SSHP are invited to apply for financial assistance for research-related costs. This includes:

  • expenses associated with specific training needs
  • fieldwork or research trips
  • conferences, workshops or other academic events where the applicant is presenting a paper or chairing a session.

Please note that you cannot use the award for purchasing books or computer software/hardware.

You should discuss with your supervisor(s) what conferences might be useful for you to attend, well in advance of the conference (to allow time between application for funds and the conference deadlines).

Awards will not be approved in excess of £500 per student per academic year (October to September).

You are expected to have already used alternative sources of funding available to you (for example, departmental allowances, allowances that are part of ESRC, AHRC or other externally-funded studentships, or other College awards and bursaries).

When to apply:

There are two deadlines: 20 November 2018 and 21 May 2019.
