For travel grants, or funding to attend conferences, your college and the English Faculty should be your first port of call. The Faculty’s Maxwell and Meyerstein Fund provides up to £400 (per graduate, spanning your whole student career) for these purposes.

AHRC-funded doctoral candidates have access to the AHRC’s International Placement Scheme, providing funded research fellowships at various institutions.

The Humanities website also has some helpful funding links [NOTE: the links to Research Professional may not work via Eduroam – connect via your college’s internet or another central Oxford wifi]
