Postgraduate Community Competition

The Graduate School invites applications from research students for funding to support student-led activities in 2016-17. This could include students (or groups of students) organising workshops, courses, conferences or attracting speakers to events.

We would particularly like to encourage proposed events taking place in the Penglais Postgraduate Centre and/or the Llanbadarn Postgraduate Rooms.

We run two competitions each academic year: in December and March with a sum of up to £1,000 granted to support the successful initiative(s).

Researcher applications need not be more than one side of A4 and should include the following information:

  • A brief description of the nature of the activity;
  • The actual or planned date and location of the activity;
  • The costs of the activity and the amount requested from the Postgraduate Community Competition;
  • The intended audience/participants – in particular whether the activity could or would be open to postgraduate research students from other departments.

Please submit applications to Dr Ian Archer, Skills Development Officer, Graduate School, S3 Cledwyn Building, email: to meet the following deadline:

  • 16th December 2016
  • 24th March 2017

Successful applicants will be asked to provide a short report after the funded activity has taken place.
