Graduate-led conferences and symposia

School of Arts and Humanities researcher development funding for graduate-led conferences and symposia

The School of Arts and Humanities has agreed to make up to £10,000 available for graduate-led conferences held during 2017-18.

The intention is to allow postgraduate research students within the School to set up and run conferences and symposia, gaining valuable transferable skills in the process. It is expected that successful bids will not be for more than £1,000 per conference. Therefore, they would not be suitable for covering large stipends and long-distance travel costs for external speakers.

Bids should be submitted by the lead student co-ordinating the conference. Before submitting this form, please ensure you have discussed the proposal with your supervisor and that it has been approved both by them and your academic Degree Committee Secretary.

All bids must be received by 5 pm 1 December 2017.

Dr Matt Lane (AHSS Postgraduate Skills Training Officer) will be running a training session: all students interested in applying are encouraged to attend. This will take place at 12.15-13.15 pm on 15 November 2017, in LR5, Mill Lane Lecture Rooms.

When applying, please refer to the researcher development framework, which can be found here, to complete the aims of conference/symposium section.
