University of Bristol Featured Postgraduate Funding

Graduate School Research Travel Grant (GSRTG)


To fund students to travel to access resources in Australia or overseas that have enabled them to speed up progress on and enhance the quality of their thesis.

These grants do not fund essential research travel signalled in the initial research proposal since that should be met from other grants or school funds; GSRTGs are not intended for consultation and Conference travel will not be funded. Preference will be given to travel that was unforeseen at the time of confirmation of candidature. Travel to workshops where new specialist techniques are taught may be funded in special cases; these require a strong and well supported argument, clearly indicating how this training will benefit the timely submission of the thesis. Successful applicants must be enrolled full-time for the duration of their travel and travel must commence within 6 months of the grant being offered. Students enrolled in a PhD by Cotutelle, in International Collaborative Mode or in a similar international collaborative arrangement must satisfy the same eligibility criteria as all other GSRTG applicants.


Applicants must be enrolled for a PhD or MPhil degree, must be confirmed PhD or MPhil candidates by the closing date - no exceptions, who have previously held a GSRTG are not eligible, grants will not be made retrospectively. Applicants are ineligible if they are already undertaking the research travel at the time of application closing date and if the need for this research travel was identified in the initial research proposal.
