UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences


Graduate Conference and External Training Courses Fund

New Deadlines for 2016/17 added, below.

The funds previously administered by the Graduate School were devolved to Faculties in May 2014. 

  • The administrative processes have been streamlined to reduce the administrative burden on all involved, whether applying for or administering funds. 
  • Applications are now submitted by email, documentation verified and payments made locally within Departments.   

Three further schemes were devolved from the Graduate School in 2014: the Bridging, Research Project and Staff Conference Fund Schemes.  All three funds were disestablished, the funds available (charged across all Departments) being insufficient to deliver an equitable or useful provision, in the case of the Bridging fund only allowing for approximately one award per Faculty per annum. 

Deadlines for the submission of applications to the Student Conference and External Training Course Fund in 2016-17 are midday on Monday 26 September 2016, Monday 23 January 2017, and Tuesday, 30 May 2017. 

Applicants will be informed within 4 weeks of the deadline whether or not they have received funding.

Applications should be submitted by email to Anna Hindley, Graduate Operations Manager, SLMS Academic Careers Office.  NB All applications will be acknowledged; if you have not received an acknowledgement within two weeks, please contact me to check it has been received!
