The Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate)

Applications for the 2018 Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate) are now open.

Russell Trust Awards are made to postgraduate students who require funds in order to support travel costs connected with their research. Funds are awarded to active research projects and are made only for the costs of travel – not to assist with the payment of tuition fees, accommodation or any other expenses incurred from your trip. To be considered for an award, students must be registered for a research degree at the University. Students registered for taught degree programmes (Postgraduate Diploma, MSc, MRes, MLitt) are not eligible to apply.

Applications should be submitted by completing the ‘Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate) form in MySaint (found in the Scholarships & Funding catalogue, under ‘My Applications’). Applicants are further required to upload a project outline and two academic references in support of their application.

The application deadline is Wednesday 18 April 2018.

Further information about the awards and application process can be found in the guidelines document on the right hand side of this page. Assistance can also be provided by the Stewardship Officer in Development on 01334 461911 or by emailing
