Funding

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]
