Postgraduate Experience Enhancement Fund

poster_no_link.jpgThe Graduate School has established a Postgraduate Experience Enhancement Fund, allowing you to take ownership for the improvement and growth of your community and experience, as well as that of your peers.

Using this fund you could develop careers guidance resources, create an interdisciplinary journal, or establish a reading group - it is your opportunity to make the kind of improvements you want to see for the postgraduate experience.

This fund is intended to have a fast turnaround so you can see improvements to your experience throughout the year.

The Graduate School is now accepting applications. The deadline is 1 February 2018.

Overview

  • Students making the applications must be current Warwick postgraduates and the request must not be in receipt of funding from elsewhere in the University.
  • There is no minimum or maximum level of funding, however, the intention of this fund is to make a number of small enhancements across the University, therefore we do not envision allocating more than £250 in one area.
  • Initial applications will be reviewed by the Graduate School then passed to a panel made up of the Postgraduate Sabbatical Officer, Part Time and Mature Students’ Officer, Academic Director of the Graduate School and Postgraduate Student Development Officer
  • The project/item must directly benefit Warwick postgraduates.
  • The item or project must be open to or available to be used by all Warwick postgraduates and housed in a central space[1]
  • It is expected that all applicants will hear if their application has been successful and an expected timeline of delivery within five weeks of the application deadline
  • Proposed spending must be clearly defined and within the University’s Financial Regulations.
  • Further rules and regulations are available here.

[1] Central spaces include: PG Hub, Research Exchange, Westwood communal areas, Gibbet Hill communal areas, the Graduate, Grad Deck.
