RADMA has issued an open call for proposals under its Postgraduate Student Research Support Programme. This award provides support to talented mid-study Masters and PhD students for expenses directly related to:
(a) Postgraduate project support in the field of R&D management: up to £500 is available for Masters and £1000 for PhD projects. The award will cover costs related to specific research activities, for example: data collection and analysis, training and associated travel and expenses;
(b) Conference funding in the field of R&D management: up to £500 where the candidate is presenting a paper or £250 attendance only or presenting a poster. The award will cover costs related to attending the conference, specifically conference fees, travel, subsistence and accommodation.
While candidates can apply for project support and conference funding simultaneously, in the interests of fairness we will not normally award both simultaneously.
For more information please email email@example.com. You can download an application form by clicking here. Please read the award’s terms and conditions, which you can download by clicking here. All applications are to be submitted as Word or PDF files to firstname.lastname@example.org. Zipped documents cannot be accepted due to security risks. All applications will be confirmed via email.
Reviews are held in January, March, May, July, September and November and the deadline for each review is the last day of the previous month.
If you are interested in obtaining support from RADMA to attend the annual R&D Management Conference, please contact the organiser directly (do not apply via this funding stream.) For information on forthcoming conferences please click here.
Please note that the 2017 Doctoral Studies call is now closed. This award provides up to three years funding to talented prospective or mid-study PhD students, offering an opportunity to concentrate on the studentship for the period of the award. The expectation is that candidates will have a Masters degree in a relevant field or an excellent first degree or equivalent. Candidates will be expected to complete yearly progress reports and to make a copy of their thesis available to RADMA upon its completion. To be eligible for funding candidates must be accepted for PhD study at a UK university. Applications must be supported by the candidate’s PhD supervisor. Awards will be granted to and administered through the institution, not individual candidates. The award will cover costs related to fees and specified living expenses up to a maximum of £18,000 per academic year (pro-rata for part-time students; partial funding is a possibility) and conditional upon the receipt of acceptable annual progress reports. Please read the award's terms and conditions, which you can download by clicking here. Please download the full funding call by clicking here. Please download the application form by clicking here.
