There are two types of Small Grants for all Arts & Humanities students:
1. Group Events Grant

The Events Grant is available to students who wish to run a collaborative event in conjunction with at least one other student. This may be the organisation of a conference, a series of workshops or seminars or any other event that can demonstrably be of interest and value to the Faculty's research community.
Please note that funding will not be offered for standing events, or those associated with established networks, as the purpose of the grants is to encourage new and innovative initiatives.
Students applying for this type of grant must complete the Group Event Grant Application Form and pass it to their supervisor for submission to the Education Team by the designated deadline.
2. Individual Research Grant
Normally up to £1,000; or £750 for overseas conference attendance, or £300 for UK conference attendance
Students may submit applications for grants for fieldwork, visits to libraries, collections or sites, conference attendance, and other special activities or the acquisition of special resources clearly related to an individual’s research project or training.
Students applying for this type of grant must complete the Individual Grant Application Form and pass it to their supervisor for submission to the Education Team by the designated deadline.
