Conference Travel Funding

Postgraduate research students who have research council or charity funding (e.g. MRC, BBSRC, CR-UK) for their studentships usually have some money set aside for conference-related travel. Please talk to the DGT or Institute Head of Administration about access to these funds. Additionally, the UCL Graduate School has two funding rounds per year for major travel awards. Finally, the Institute has Kitty Cookson travel awards available twice per year, with calls typically announced in March and September. For both Graduate School and Institute conference travel funding, you must apply at least a couple of months ahead of the date of the conference, as no funding will be given retrospectively.
