We have subscribed to the Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online, which can be accessed free of charge. The Guide is an online database that identifies alternative sources of funding (charities, foundations, and trusts) who can grant awards to any student regardless of subject or nationality. The guide is written by two UK-based PhD students who, between them, won over £50,000 from 50 different charity awards. 

The database contains:
• funding opportunities
• comprehensive guidance
• grant application writing tools
• guidance for personal and financial statements

University of Derby has purchased a licence to the Guide, and so it’s free for all students and staff to use!
