SOAS Awards for Fieldwork

Fieldwork awards are available to provide financial support for SOAS postgraduate research students undertaking approved PhD fieldwork abroad.  Fieldwork awards are not renewable.

Competition for these awards is very intense and candidates and referees are encouraged to be as precise as possible in making their case for support. The awards do not cover conference attendance.

Please follow this link for further information.

The awards are administered by the Scholarships Office, Registry, SOAS (and not by the School of Law). Email: scholarships@soas.ac.uk.
