Priority will be given to those with limited alternative sources of funding (particularly postgraduate students). Priority will also be given to QRA-sponsored conferences and field meetings. Applications from postgraduates must be accompanied by a letter of support from their supervisor. Grants are normally for sums up to £750. Successful applicants will be required to provide a brief statement of expenditure and activities undertaken within 3 months after the event has taken place.
