Description

Finding alternative sources of funding

Lucy Atkinson

This workshop will show you possible routes to finding alternative sources of postgraduate 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 has secured funding for an online version of the Alternative Guide, so it won’t cost you a penny to apply for funding to support your studies! Lucy will show you how to use the Guide to find awards relevant to you.

This workshop is open to any student currently registered on a research degree programme at the University of Northampton. Further information is available from Simone Apel (simone.apel@northampton.ac.uk; 01604 893418).
