Post-Graduate Research Innovation Fund 2016
The University is pleased to announce the fourth annual call for proposals to provide funding for groups of students working on projects to support and improve the postgraduate research student experience. The PGR Innovation Fund 2016 is now accepting project proposals. The closing date for proposals is 14 June 2016.
PGR Innovation Fund awards are designed to pump-prime the development of responsive and/or innovative projects to improve the student experience. The awards will not fund individual student research. It is anticipated that 5-8 projects will be funded, each for up to £4K. Proposals do not have to be for the full £4K.
Interested parties are encouraged to attend a “launch” and information event on 11 May 2016 from 9-11 a.m. (Barbara Strang Teaching Centre G34). The booking form for the launch event is available here: http://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=7919.
PVC of Learning and Teaching Professor Suzanne Cholerton will launch the funding call, and last year’s successful project teams will participate with PG Deans and academic staff in a panel on strategies for enhancing the PGR student experience. The
application process will also be explained, and any questions you have will be answered.
The contact for initial queries about the PGR Innovation Fund 2016 is Graeme Redshaw-Boxwell in LTDS (firstname.lastname@example.org / Ext. 83903).
