Finding funding is a priority for many postgraduates.
The University of Nottingham’s postgraduate funding pages should be your starting point as this information is relevant wherever you study within the UK.
Funding for masters courses
Funding for research courses
This online guide provides alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (fees, maintenance, research costs) to any student regardless of subject, or nationality. It contains a huge database of funding opportunities, comprehensive guidance, and numerous tools to help you prepare a winning grant application.
We have purchased a licence for the guide so it’s free to Nottingham students, staff and alumni (see opposite).
In 2020-21, UoN students or alumni won 87 awards to the value of £105,350. Since 2018, the value of awards won by UoN students or alumni is £491,308.
Free webinar for UoN students
Dr Lucy Atkinson from GradFunding held a webinar on how to apply for funding through charities and trusts. She also covered more traditional sources of funding for masters and PhD students. This is an excellent session on all aspects of funding.
