UCL Grand Challenges


Doctoral Students' Small Grants

The UCL Grand Challenges and the UCL Doctoral School offer funding for doctoral students from different disciplines to work together.

In early 2017 the Grand Challenges and the UCL Doctoral School joined forces and announced a small grants call offering awards of up to £2,000 for pairs of doctoral students from different faculties who wanted to carry out research-informed, societally relevant, cross-disciplinary activities. The latest in this series of annual calls, 2019/20 offered awards of up to £2,500.

Over the years the call has welcomed ideas for a range of activities including workshops, conferences, surveys, community intervention research and art installations.
