Finding Alternative Sources of Funding: Workshop for PGRs

Pound signAre you a postgraduate researcher at the University who is self-funded? If so, you might be interested in coming along to Lucy Atkinson’s new workshop, on Wednesday, 24 June 2015 from 16:00 to 18:00 in C311, Cottesbrooke, Park Campus. Lucy will show you possible routes to finding alternative sources of funding, whether for fees, maintenance, research expenses, conferences or travel.

Lucy has been very successful in obtaining funding for her self-funded PhD and she would like to share the idea, requirements, documents and enthusiasm with you to try to help alleviate some financial pressure during your postgraduate studies. The workshop looks at a major, but neglected, alternative funding source in the area of charities and external bodies. 

Lucy will focus on how to identify sources, to approach and successfully apply to charities/bodies with the most effective methods and provide an introduction to the Alternative Guide. If you want to know more about how other students have successfully fund-raised for their postgraduate degrees using the Alternative Guide, take a look at the student stories section here.

The Graduate School is purchasing a year’s subscription to the Alternative Guide online, for all our PGR students, so why not come along and find out how you could benefit from this great resource. To book and for more information please see the Eventbrite page https://altfundingjune15.eventbrite.co.uk.
