For WRoCAH students who started from October 2014 onwards, a number of additional funding schemes are available to offer financial assistance for:

  • Participation in training and development activities
  • Research support eg. primary data gathering visits or research-related consumables
  • Student-Led Events eg. Reading or research groups, seminars or conferences
  • Knowledge Exchange with target organisations or groups

Who is eligible for what?

Not all students are eligible for the funding schemes run by WRoCAH. This is due to restrictions placed on the way we are allowed to distribute the different types of funding. Students may apply for funding during their registered period of study. The only exception to this is SLF funding which may be applied for until submission of thesis.
