Conference and Research Funding for PGR Students from the Faculty

Postgraduate students who require financial support for either a conference they wish to attend or for a research trip are eligible to apply for funding from the Conference/Research Fund. Students can apply for funding to help cover such costs as transport, accommodation and registration fees. To apply for support from this fund an application form needs to be completed and submitted to Laurie Jones who is based in B14 3-5 Woodland Road. 

Given the volume of applications, a maximum of £250 per application is specified.
You are permitted to make up to 3 applications to the fund per year (pro rata rates apply for part time students and priority consideration may be given to sudents applying for funding for the first time over students applying for the third time) 

Applications should be submitted well in advance of the conference or research trip to which they are related.
All applications handed in throughout each month will be assessed by the Faculty team on or around the 22nd of the month and a decision will be made by no later than the end of that month and communicated to the applicant, usually via email.

To apply for support from this fund an application form needs to be completed and submitted to Laurie Jones either via email at laurie.jones@bristol.ac.uk or by hand to Laurie in B.14, 3-5 Woodland Road, the Arts Complex.
All applications must be approved, signed and supported by your supervisor or personal tutor.
