funding

SOCIAL GRANT UPDATE - Committee will no longer be accepting any social grant applications for the academic year 2018/19.

Along with the funding you get from research councils, your school, the government, and many more sources, you can apply for funding from postgraduate(su). 

We have two pots of funding availble to all postgraduate students which you can find more information about underneath. These are 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.

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.

 

The Social Grant

SOCIAL GRANT UPDATE - Committee will no longer be accepting any social grant applications for the academic year 2018/19.

Every year, lots of student-led postgraduate events are made possible because of the Social Grant. Whether you'd like to host a social event, a dinner, a trip to the coast, or anything else that involves fun and community-building, this grant can help you cover some of the costs. Here is an example of best practice for an idea of how to appropriately break down costs and describe your event.

To apply for the Social Grant, please complete this form and return it via e-mail to union.postgrads@uea.ac.uk. Please remember to refer to the last page of the form for some guidance before starting your application. Feel free to e-mail us at the same address to ask us any questions you have as well!

 

The Conference/Research Fund

We understand that the postgraduate experience can sometimes extend well beyond campus. Where your funding options for attending a conference or covering your research costs are narrow, postgraduate(su) is here to help you! Through the Conference/Research Fund, you can claim back for any major expenses incurred to you by a conference you attended or some research you conducted. 

To apply, please complete this form and return it via e-mail to union.postgrads@uea.ac.uk. Please remember to refer to the last page of the form for some guidance before starting your application. Feel free to e-mail us at the same address to ask us any questions you have as well!
