Funding opportunities for postgraduate students

last modified May 01, 2018 04:05 PM

To all MPhil and PhD students in the Faculty of History,


The Faculty of History hosts several funds which provide various grants-in-aid (for research travel and subsistence) and/or studentship bursaries for the benefit of postgraduate students. The full details of each trust fund including conditions of eligibility, value of awards and application processes are available on the Faculty of History website: Some trust funds also offer prizes, details of which are in the above link.


Most funds impose a deadline within each term for applications for grants-in-aid, while the deadlines for studentship bursaries (maintenance grants) fall largely within Easter term, to take effect in academic year 2018/19 (with the exception of the Lightfoot Fund for which the deadline has passed). Each fund is endowed for a particular purpose and thus each has its own terms and conditions. Please pay close attention to the details of each fund if you are considering an application. Application forms for grants and studentships are available through the above link.
