QMUL Postgraduate Research Fund and Doctoral College Initiative Fund

Research Fund

The QMUL Postgraduate Research Fund is open to all Postgraduate Research students at QMUL and is designed to support travel and other expenses (although not consumables and equipment) related to the student’s doctoral studies. Applications to the Fund will be assessed by a panel of senior colleagues from across the College (two per faculty). The panel will normally assess applications a couple of weeks after the deadline, and both applicants and schools/institutes will be informed of the results.¬†Funds will only be reimbursed to awardees after they have made the initial payment themselves and have submitted to their School/Institute the expenses claim form together with receipts.
