Decisions by the Academic Board on applications for research funding are guided by the criteria set out here.
Applications for research abatement (including postgraduate study) must be accompanied by a completed Research Reporting Form. Make sure you save the completed form where you can access it again, as this form also serves as the form for your mid-year and end-of-year research reports – all you will need to do is to simply update the appropriate column. The Research Reporting Form can be found here
To apply for funding to present at a conference, please complete the Application for Conference Funding and submit this to your Faculty Research Committee. The Application for Conference Funding form can be found here.
If you have had your research published you are eligible to apply to the Publication Fund for funds to be used for research-related purposes. The completed application form should be submitted to your Faculty Research Committee. The application form for the Publication Fund can be found here.
