Travel and Research grants

Information about travel and research grants for graduate students

St Catharine's has a designated fund from which it makes awards to graduates for travel and research expenses. In 2018-19 approximately £30,000 is available to support Graduate Travel and Research.

Travel and Research Grants

Applications for Travel and Research grants are processed approximately once a week. Incomplete applications will be returned. In particular, for travel, conferences and research expenses it is essential that you have your application endorsed by your supervisor.

Applicants must also apply to other sources for funding assistance, such as their department or faculty, among others. We will not reach a decision until they have heard the outcome of these other sources and notified the Graduate Administrator.

Natural Science students who have been members (Fellows) of the Cambridge Philosophical Society for over a year are eligible to apply to the society for travel grants - more information is available here. Please note we will not consider applications to the Graduate Fund to such students who are eligible for membership and have neither joined the society nor applied for assistance. 

Please note that we are unable to offer assistance towards book purchases or thesis binding costs.

The application form can be downloaded here and should be returned to the Graduate Administrator.

Annual Fund Language Grants

The college will normally provide students with half of the cost of a language course at the University Language Centre, provided the course is completed. You should apply using the College Bursary Form, available to download here.
