A to Z of funding (P)


Postgraduate students

The Higher Education Careers Service Unit produces a Postgraduate Funding Guide as part of their Prospects service. You can get details of this from their website (www.prospects.csu.ac.uk). If you don't have internet access you could ring them on 0161 236 9816.

Macmillan produces a book, The Grants Register, which lists over 3,500 potential sources of funding for postgraduate students worldwide. This guide is quite expensive (£125), so its probably worth visiting a reference library or a careers service to see a copy.

www.scholarship-search.org.uk provides information on trusts which give grants to postgraduates. You answer two or three basic questions about what you're looking for and they will give you the details of relevant trusts.

Each university should have a careers service and a student support department, either of which should have details of potential sources of funding. Details of funds available are sometimes listed somewhere on the university's website.
