Funding & Scholarships

For all Postgraduate Students

Postgraduate-Led Initiatives Funding

The Graduate School has funding available throughout the year to assist current postgraduate students in organising academic events and cultural interventions, which work to bring together the wider communities within both Postgraduate Taught and Research student bodies at Queen's University.

This funding is allocated for initiatives developed and delivered by postgraduate students to help enrich the experience of the wider postgraduate community. The programme supports skills development such as leadership, effective communication and project management by providing students with the opportunity to manage events and budgets through first-hand experience.
