The Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate)

The Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate) are available 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 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 ineligible to apply.

Applications for the Russell Trust Awards 2018 will open in early 2018. A link to the application form will appear here at this time.

You will be required to complete the application form and obtain academic references in support of your application.

If you have any questions regarding the awards or your application please read the RTAPG Guidelines 2017 document on the right side of this page. Thereafter further assistance can be provided by the Stewardship Officer in Development on +44 (0)1334 461911 or email
