PGR Conference Fund 2018-19

PGR Conference Fund 2018-19

The University Research & Knowledge Exchange Office (URKEO) recognises the importance of giving oral or poster presentations at conferences and for this reason has increased the PGR Conference Fund to assist self-funded postgraduate research students or PGR students who are not on a full-funded bursary or sponsorship. A total of £10,000 is available for 2018-19. For general PGR funding opportunities, please contact your College.

Funds are awarded on a competitive basis; they are not an entitlement and cannot be made retrospectively. Please ensure that you have read carefully the guidelines below before submitting an Application form.

Completed forms should be sent to URKEO URKEO@derby.ac.uk with the subject line ‘PGR Conference Fund’. Evidence of acceptance to participate at the conference (e.g. an email from the organiser) is required.

There are 5 competition rounds for 2018-19. Please consider the timing when applying. Applications should be made in advance of the conference taking place.

Deadline for round 1: noon, 28 September 2018

Deadline for Round 2: noon, 30 November 2018

Deadline for Round 3: noon, 28 February 2019

Deadline for Round 4: noon, 26 April 2019

Deadline for Round 5: noon, 28 June 2019

An assessment panel will assess the applications and normally, all applicants should be informed of the decision within one month of the deadline.
