This fund is for PhD students who want to attend an overseas conference. You can use the grant for any part of conference attendance including travel, registration fees and accommodation.

How much you can apply for

Grants depend on the location of the conference. Examples of awards to applicants from the UK and Ireland are below. Awards to overseas applicants may be different.
