(you will need to be logged in with your WRoCAH account to access this link)

For WRoCAH students who started from October 2014 to 2018, 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 funding what?

Not all students are eligible for the funding schemes run by WRoCAH although all students can use the resources of WRoCAH to, for example, organise a Researcher Employability Project themselves. Differences in funding eligibility are due to restrictions placed on the way we are allowed to distribute the different types of funding. Eligible students may apply for funding during their basic funded period.
