MPhil/MRes Dissertation Expenses Grant

The MPhil/MRes Dissertation Expenses Grant provides grants to assist with research expenses for dissertations for students registered on the MPhil or MRes in Social Anthropology.

Grants are normally made for expenses over and above ordinary maintenance costs. Applicants should not expect all of their expenses to be covered by the grant, which may only be able to offer part of the amount requested.

Students must have discussed their dissertation plans and their proposed expenses grant claim with their principal supervisor prior to submitting their application.

Funding awarded is at the discretion of the Trust Fund Managers.
