Awards for Fieldwork
This year there are a number of Santander Mobility Awards and fieldwork awards of up to £1,000 for SOAS postgraduate research students undertaking approved PhD fieldwork abroad.
Awards cannot be granted more than once during a MPhil/PhD programme. If you have already had a Santander Mobility award you may not apply for a further Santander Mobility Award nor may you apply for a Fieldwork Award. If you have already had a Fieldwork Award you may not apply for a further Fieldwork Award nor may you apply for a Santander Mobility Award.
We normally get more applicants than awards available. Candidates and referees are encouraged to be as precise as possible in making their case for support.
The awards do not cover conference attendance.
Normally, no awards will be paid until you have upgraded to PhD and have obtained fieldwork approval
