Cambridge students

 

Applications are now open.

University travel awards are made annually from three funds. Applicants may apply to one fund only. If you are eligible to apply to more than one fund, you will be placed at no disadvantage by applying to one fund rather than another.

 

Application Information

Applications should lay out an applicant's proposed work and estimated costs in detail. In all cases, the fund Managers will judge applications on quality, originality and individuality of the proposal, and the applicant’s previous academic record.

Retrospective applications for activities already undertaken are not permitted.

The following activities will not be supported: participation in study programmes or language courses; volunteer work with established charities; conferences (either to present a paper or to attend); placements and internships related to M.Phil.courses; medical electives; seeing veterinary practice; laboratory visits or work experience.

Graduate students in receipt of full research council funding should not normally expect to receive a grant from the Fund.

When more than one individual is involved in any project, a separate application must be submitted by each applicant. Applicants must state clearly which country or countries they intend to visit and who else in the project has applied for an award.

Following the submission of an application, an email will be sent to the applicant's supervisor/Director of Studies requesting a supporting statement. It is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that such statements are submitted by the relevant deadline (see below).

Successful applicants are required to submit a report and a financial report of their expedition to the Scholarships Administrator by 1 December annually.
