Opportunity for Grants in Feminist Scholarship: £500


The newly-established Fran Trust has been set up to provide grants of up to £500, for postgraduate students studying at UK universities, allowing them to attend and present papers on a gender-related topic at academic conferences in the UK.

The Trust welcomes entries from across a range of disciplines: the only requirement is that the paper has a gender focus. The award can be used to cover travel, subsistence and conference fees.

This fund is administered by Foundation Scotland. To apply, students must have confirmation that their paper has been accepted. We also require a brief letter of support from an academic supervisor. Once the conference has taken place, successful candidates will be asked to submit a copy of the conference paper to the Foundation.

Closing date for applications is 31st August 2013. Application forms are available from Foundation Scotland at http://www.foundationscotland.org.uk/programmes/fran-trust.aspx
