SOAS University of London


Santander Mobility Awards

Deadline: 30 October 2017

A number of Santander Mobility Awards of up to £1,000 each  are available to provide financial support for SOAS postgraduate research students undertaking approved PhD fieldwork abroad. 

Santander Mobility Awards for overseas fieldwork are not renewable and may not be held alongside a SOAS Fieldwork Award.

Please note that 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 a Santander Mobility Award.  Santander Mobility and Fieldwork Awards may not be granted more than once during a MPhil/ PhD program. This rule is to enable as many students as possible to apply for awards towards fieldwork.

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.

Application Deadline

MONDAY 30 October 2017 17.00 UK time – for students leaving for fieldwork from 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2018 inclusive. Late applications cannot be considered
