Doctoral Students' Fund

The Students’ Union has a pot of £1500 to give to develop the doctoral student experience at the University of Bath.

The Doctoral Students’ Fund aims to:
  1. Strengthen research culture in departments and faculties for doctoral students.
  2. Give doctoral students the opportunity to meet peers from outside their usual circles, so addressing postgraduate isolation.
  3. Provide the opportunity for doctoral students to gain new skills in areas such as networking, public engagement, and cross-disciplinary research collaboration.
Applications need to fulfill at least two of these three criteria:
  • Public engagement outside of the doctoral research environment
  • Networking opportunities for doctoral students
  • The promotion of research collaboration amongst doctoral researchers


We may not be able to fund the complete amount requested but can offer smaller amounts of funding.
