UCL participates in the EPSRC vacation bursary scheme. Awards are normally calculated to reflect the recommended weekly stipend and consumables allowance.
- The proposed project must be within the EPSRC funding remit.
- The student must be enrolled on a first UCL undergraduate degree programme within the EPSRC funding remit, and should not be in their first or final year of study.
- Projects must have a clearly defined outcome and may not form part of a student's degree programme. Proposers should think in terms of the bursary providing the student with opportunities to explore and obtain research experience.
- The student must meet the EPSRC eligibility criteria by the end of their degree.
- Proposals must be submitted by named UCL academic staff members.
Proposals will be assessed against the: (a) technical quality of the proposed project; (b) quality of the experience that will be offered to the student; (c) academic potential of the student.
Proposals should be in the form of a one A4 page case for support (single-sided), containing an abstract and workplan. The duration of the project (weeks - minimum 4, maximum 10) should be specified, along with (costed) requests for any specialist equipment, or consumables. The project supervisor(s) and student should be named. A minimum font-size of 10pt, with top and side margins of no less than 1cm should be used. A (short) student CV should be appended.
Awards may pay a maximum stipend of £220/week.
