IATL's Student as Producer (Collaboration) funding is available to undergraduate and taught Masters students only. You may apply for up to £2000 for your project, although we welcome applications for smaller sums.
The key citerion for this funding stream is that projects must be collaborative and student led. We encourage you to consider the word 'collaboration' in a wide and innovative sense. Projects should always involve more than one Warwick student but you might also wish to work together with a wider interdisciplinary group of students, with members of staff, or with members of the local or international community.

- Costs associated with dissemination activities, e.g. printing, postage;
- Release of time from teaching, research or administrative duties (staff);
- Research or administrative assistance;Purchase of training and services;

- Payment for the time spent on the project;
- Normal costs of course delivery, as distinct from additional costs of innovation (staff);
- Equipment or ICT hardware/software;
- Institutional overheads, although the on-costs of salaries are allowed.
