As part of the MAPS Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategic plan for the period 2019-2022, the faculty is relaunching the MAPS Caring Fund. The aim of this fund is to enable all staff (academics, researchers, teaching fellows, professional services staff, technical staff) and PhD students with caring responsibilities to attend meetings, conferences, workshops and work events outside normal working patterns.

The Faculty has allocated £5,000 per annum and applications will be considered throughout the year until the fund is exhausted. In order to apply, please read through the guidelines for the Caring Fund, and then submit the application form, attached here as a word document, to maps.caring@ucl.ac.uk

If you have any questions, please contact the MAPS vice-Dean for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Prof Alexandra Olaya-Castro (a.olaya@ucl.ac.uk) or email maps.caring@ucl.ac.uk
