A small fund exists from which graduate students of the Department may apply for a contribution towards the cost of (in order of priority): organising conferences; presenting at conferences; travel for research; attending conferences; similar research related activities, which will both facilitate their research and raise the research profile of the Department.
Students must apply to the Professor of History of Art (c/o The Manager of Administration) via the attached form, giving an outline of the activity; rationale for attendance, including relevance to their research activities; and an indication of other funding applied for (it is expected that other funds will have been sought). Applications are considered in Week 0 of each term.
Funding, if granted, will be given through reimbursement of expenses, for which a claim form and receipts will be required. 50% of travel costs, or a maximum of £100 (£200 for organising conferences), will be awarded, to be decided at the discretion of the Department. A short report (one side of A4) will be required afterwards, and the student may be invited to present on the topic to the Department.
