The Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate)

The Russell Trust Awards (Postgraduate) 2017 have now opened for applications.

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 ineligible to apply.

Applications for the Russell Trust Awards can be made by completing the online application form here and submitting two references in support of your application (via the online application form). The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 12 April 2017.

If you have any questions regarding the awards or your application please read the RT PG Guidelines 2017 document on the right side of this page. Thereafter further assistance can be provided by the Stewardship Assistant in Development on 01334 462109 or email
