Grants linked to a particular University
Many universities and departments offer grants. These
offer are specifically for courses at that university. If you know where you want to apply, you should check the website or telephone the department to see whether the department or university that you are interested in offers any and whether you are eligible to compete for them. They are also advertised when they come up and you can find them on the
web pages of the academic institutions.
The British Academy, another important grant-giving body, only offers travel and conference grants to postgraduates. A careful trawl of the websites will establish what is available and what you are eligible for.
