MPhil/PhD Exchange and Travel Opportunities

Warburg Institute Travel Fund for existing Warburg MPhil/PhD Students

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the uncertainties this is creating around travel, we are not going to consider applications to the travel fund for the autumn term. We will make a decision about the spring term in due course. 

 

Application for the SAS Hardship Grant (Training/Research)

The SAS Hardship Grant (Training) provides funding to allow doctoral students who have no other source of funding, to attend a course, to undergo essential training, or to make an essential research trip. It is not intended to assist with the cost of attending a conference.

You can apply for help from the Fund (Training) at any time during the academic year, and any time during the first 2 years of a 3 year doctorate (full time) or in the first 4 years of part time study. Grants are non-repayable.

Scuola Normale Superiore Exchange Programme

The Scuola Normale Superiore exchange is available for a period of three months to Warburg Institute students who have completed two years of their PhD studies. The exchange is intended for research in disciplines which are common to the Institute and the Scuola Normale. Exchange students have access to seminars and facilities and are able to participate in the cultural activities of the Scuola. If you wish to submit an application for the exchange please submit a brief note outlining why you wish to apply for the exchange and what work you wish to pursue whilst there together with a letter of support from your supervisor. Applications should be sent to warburg@sas.ac.uk​. These will be considered by The Warburg Institute teaching committee and if accepted will be forwarded to the Scuola for consideration. Any application submitted now will be for an exchange period in the next academic year.

The Scoula will provide help with finding suitable accommodation but there is no financial support for accommodation or for subsistence and these costs, and travel costs, must be met by the student. Accommodation may be available in the Scuola Normale student residences.
