Santander Mobility Award

Through the Doctoral College, the Santander Foundation offers travel awards and research collaboration funding for work in other countries, or to host a researcher or academic from one of these countries in Loughborough.  

Please note that this funding is not normally awarded solely for conference travel.  Please refer to the guidance notes prior to applying.

International PhD Exchanges

As part of the internationalisation of research and to increase joint publications with international partners this scheme provides an opportunity for PhD student exchanges with strategic partners. Applications can be for Loughborough students to travel overseas or for international students to visit Loughborough. A strategic case must be made by the Associate Dean for Research on the form beow, including an indication of expected outcomes from the exchange. Up to 80% of the associated costs are available from the Doctoral College up to a maximum of £2500. The Doctoral College can advise on alternative sources of funding where Schools are not able to cover the remaining costs.
