The Graduate and Researcher College invites applications for funding from postgraduate students (both taught and research) to run events or projects which have an interdisciplinary and/or external focus which will enhance the community experience of postgraduate students at Kent.

Once you have come up with a great idea to enhance the postgraduate community experience at Kent, you will need to think about how you want to make it happen.

  • Who is going to help you?
  • How much will your activity cost?
  • How much time will you need to allocate to the project/event?
  • Where do you want to do it?
  • How are you going to organise your activity?
  • How will it benefit our postgraduate community?

Discuss your idea with friends and colleagues, and make sure your supervisor is aware that you want to submit an application. You will need to provide a letter of support from your School’s Director of Graduate Studies, so talk to them as well.

Read the Information Sheet (PDF 125KB) carefully as it will outline the scope of the award, and the level of support the Graduate and Researcher College is able to provide.

When you are ready, you will need to fill out an Application Form (DOC 2.23MB) and email it with a copy of your CV and a letter of support from your Divisional Director of Graduate Studies. Applications should be directed to by the allocated deadline.

More information can be found on our website, along with the Information Sheet and a downloadable application form.

Good Luck!
