Faculty of Languages and Cultures

Conference allowance for Research students

£300 annual conference allowance for research students

The Languages & Cultures Faculty has agreed to provide a maximum of £300 to enable its MPhil/PhD research students to attend conferences/workshops etc. to present papers. Only one award per year is possible, and there are a limited number available.

The applicant should first e-mail his/her supervisor with the following information:

  1. Name
  2. Conference title, date and venue
  3. Title of paper
  4. Estimated cost

The supervisor should then forward the email with approval to Dr Rachel Harrison, Associate Dean Research (rh6@soas.ac.uk), copying to Roger Nuthall, Faculty Administrator (rn2@soas.ac.uk).

To claim expenses, once you have heard that your application has been successful, students should send either an invoice (pre-conference) or receipts (post-conference) to Roger Nuthall (room 359).

Please note this process will change for the 2014/15 session, so all claims must be made by the end of July 2014.
