Student Researching Funding
Student as Producer (Research) grants are available to undergraduate and taught Masters students only. You may apply for up to £1000 for your project, though we welcome applications for smaller sums.
Research should be original, student-led and unrelated to anything you are required to do as part of your course of study; i.e. funding cannot support any work which will later be submitted for assessment.
Each application recieved will be considered by an assessment panel made up of staff and students from across the university.
We will assess applications using the following criteria:
Timescale: Is a detailed description of activity over the course of the project offered, with project 'milestones' noted, such as the planned dates of key events, travel, performances, and/or workshops?
Aims, Approaches and Activities: Are these clear and realistic? Is the design and method appropriate to the aims? Are research questions (if any) clearly framed? Are the planned activities detailed, including mention of other people to be involved? Is the project grounded in any of the existing relevant literature?
Outcomes and Dissemination: Are project outcomes clear, with appropriate plans for sharing and embedding insights learned? How are project insights to be shared within the institution and to the disciplinary community? Internal and external workshops, conference presentations, web-resources, publications?
Budget: Is a realistic and fully-costed budget provided?
Compatibility with IATL's aims: To what degree does the project meet IATL's working principles?

All IATL funding recipients will need to submit a final report on completion of their project. This can take the form of a written report (1500-2000 words), films, podcasts, reflective journals or other resources.
Delivery of Funding
Once a project has been approved for funding a payment for 80% of the total amount will be raised. Remaining funds will be released on reciept of a satisfactory final report and statement of expenditure (fully supported by reciepts). We reserve the right to reclaim any funds which remain unspent by the end of the project.
Management of Funding
Grants may be used for the following:
- Costs associated with any travel which will be required for the project;
- Attendance at academic conferences relevant to the project;
- Costs associated with dissemination activities, e.g. printing, postage.
Grants may not normally be used for:
- Normal costs associated with writing a dissertation;
- Internships or work experience;
