Graduate School Conference Fund – Deadline 15 January

At the start of November, 20 students were awarded grants of up to £300 to present their research at conferences around the world. You can find out more about the grant-winners for the first round of this year’s competition here.

The deadline for the second round of the conference fund is now only a month away, so if you are presenting your research at a conference between February 6 – May 5 2015, and need additional financial support in order to attend, you may be eligible to apply for a Graduate School Conference Fund Grant.

The fund offers grants of up to £300 per award to support postgraduate students at King’s College London attend conferences where they will be delivering an oral or poster presentation on their research in 2014/15.

And this year, we are delighted that, for the first time, we are able to open up the scheme to Masters students, thanks to additional funds being allocated to it.

There are three remaining competition rounds for the 2014/15 academic year, and each round covers conferences within a specific period, as below:
