Funding for activities
Funding for student-led conferences
The Research Student Skills Programme (RSSP) can provide funding for postgraduate research students wishing to organise a conference, seminar or meeting around your research area.
The application process for 2017-18 is now open and will close no later than 31 May 2018 (or once all available funding has been allocated).
Any bursaries granted will be transferred to your department and must be spent by 31 July 2018 (unless you are advised otherwise by your department).
Please note: this funding is NOT a travel grant to aid you in attending national or international conferences.
