In the second round of funding we have 4 x £5000 scholarships from Santander for BU staff or research students to travel to at least one university from the Santander overseas network to undertake a specific piece of work and build or develop links with international researchers. This call is open to applications until 13th January.
Awards will be announced by the end of January 2012, and funds must be spent before the end of July 2012. Preference will be given to applications received from postgraduate research students and early career researchers.
Funds can only be used to cover direct costs (i.e. not salary costs or overheads).
Successful applicants will be expected to participate in general PR activities about their research. This may involve attending events and promoting the benefits of the funding.
The closing date for applications is Friday 13 January 2012.
Unsuccessful submissions from the last round of the Santander Scholarship funding cannot be resubmitted to this round. Previous unsuccessful applicants can submit new projects/ideas to this round.
