COVID-19 - Update
Committee have decided to halt the conference and social grant funding inline with the university suspending face to face teaching, and as many conferences are currently being cancelled. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Stay tuned on our social media and this page for updates. The Forms are still available to download, and you may still send them in but they will not currently be considered by the committee.
Postgraduate Social and Conference / Research Grants
Along with the funding you get from research councils, your school, the government, and other sources, you can apply for funding for certain purposes from postgraduate(su). The funds are made available through the postgraduate committee, made up of full time officers and elected volunteers from the postgraduate community.
We have two pots of funding availble to all postgraduate students: the Social Grant, which is aimed at subsidising social activities that help develop the postgraduate community, and the Conference/Research Fund, which aims to help postgraduate students with costs incurred by conferences or research activities. Both of these exist to help every postgraduate student at UEA, so please use them, and encourage others to do so too!
Before you make your application, please make sure you read and understand the Terms of Reimbursement so that you are familiar with what we can and cannot fund, as well as how the reimbursement process works. There are also some restrictions and guidelines in the final page of each application form (forms are found below). Please read these carefully before starting your application.
The fund is limited in its scope and once the funding has run out we can no longer accept applications until the next committee are elected. As a result, this could lead to periods where we can't accept applications, and for this we are sorry. For these reasons we always ask that you ensure that you have either spent or applied to all other funding sources before you submit an application to ensure those who need this fund this most have access.
Funds are restrictive, so please don't be disappointed if your application is rejected by the Committee. We only consider applications in advance of the event (at least two weeks before the date of the event), and of high quality and detail. Applications that do not meet this standard will be returned for further development.
