The University is committed to supporting research students throughout this period of COVID-19. As in previous years, a smaller second round of PRSS has been arranged for 2020, with not all Faculties and University Schools participating in this round. Check the Eligibility page for further details.
Funding is available for research activities in the current calendar year. You can apply for funding in advance. You can also apply for funding retrospectively, as long as you apply in the same calendar year as the research activity. In this case, we may ask you to provide receipts or evidence.
Ask your supervisor for advice about preparing an application for PRSS funding, as this is part of your research training.
