Conference Attendance Fund

The Institute of Commonwealth Studies’ Conference Attendance Fund is intended to provide research students who are presenting their work at conferences with a contribution towards the cost of attending such a conference. An award may be used to cover or part-cover costs such as transport, accommodation, and conference registration fees.

In order to make an application to the Conference Attendance Fund, you must be a registered research (MPhil/PhD) student of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (including its Human Rights Consortium), and must be presenting a paper at the conference you are applying for funding to attend.

The maximum award made to any individual student will be as follows:

  • £150 for students attending a conference within the United Kingdom;
  • £250 for students attending a conference overseas.

Applications must be submitted by 10 May 2019 (by 11.59 UK time). Please note that applications are not considered on a rolling basis. You will be notified of the outcome of your application.
