Theme Based Conferences

At night

All interdisciplinary theme-based conferences are to be organised by graduate students and/or staff in across the Faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences.

Up to £1500 is available per application.

Applications may either be made for small themed mini-conferences, or for larger ones linked to applications for outside funding, using this as an institutional ‘top-up’.

Applications should include details of the proposed activity and budget. They should cover no more than one sheet of A4.

Applications (no more than one page A4) must:

  • Include details of the purposes and programme of the planned event(s)
  • Include a breakdown of likely costs for any refreshments, room bookings, and travel expenses, etc (fees for visiting speakers are not entertained)
  • Showcase UCL Faculties of Arts & Humanities' and Social & Historical Sciences' research

Applications are particularly welcome if they:

  • Demonstrate interdisciplinarity
  • Demonstrate graduate student involvement in organisation as well as presentation
Full details are covered in the Funding Guidelines and Expense Form available on the FIGS Funding page.

Please send all applications to Kim Morgan -
