Funding and Studentships

Research Culture Fund

The fund can be used to support postgraduate student activities that enhance the research culture within and across Schools.

This fund, which has been made available by the Development Trust, has been established in direct response to the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) 2011 results and is intended to support and encourage student-led academic events across the University.

The fund can be used to support postgraduate student activities that enhance the research culture within and across Schools. Events that encourage collaboration across Schools and Research Schools will be looked upon favourably.

Events must be student led and open to all interested postgraduate students. Students are encouraged to put forward their own novel event proposals, however, examples of appropriate events include:

  • Journal clubs
  • Research student conferences
  • Discussion groups, reading groups and writing groups
  • Presentations and seminars

Full details and eligibility information can be found on the Research Culture Fund application form.
