Travel and Training funds

The Division has limited funds for staff to support travel to conferences and apply for funds for external training courses. Applicants should apply using the forms provided on the intranet. Priority is given to early career researchers who have presentations at national or international conferences. Applicants are expected to get funds from other sources (for example their line manager) to approximately match the funds offered by the Division. Applications can be made at any time.

The Division has also developed a scheme to enable staff to apply for funds for external training courses which will help them develop additional research skills. This is aimed primarily at early career researchers and applicants are expected to have obtained matching funds from other sources such as their line manager when that is possible. The value of each training award would be about £500 with a maximum of £1,000. Many opportunities for training exist within UCL, so if an external course is requested applicants should explain the advantages over any less expensive or free UCL equivalents.
