Globally Engaged Research (GER) Scholarship Scheme

The University is home to a vibrant community of doctoral students pursuing innovative, high-quality research projects. Our research is globally engaged, which is reflected in the many international topics investigated, as well as the participation of our researchers in conferences around the world.

In support of this global engagement we are pleased to offer a series of scholarships to doctoral researchers fully enrolled on any of our programmes. The scholarships are for the following five activities:

1. Participation in academic or professional conferences nationally or internationally, where students have been selected to present their research

2. Attendance at and participation in training courses and workshops, to develop and enhance research methods skills.

3. Organisation of seminars and conferences at the University of Westminster. This funding is for doctoral student-initiated events which seek to foster and develop our research community both within the university and beyond it.

4. Doctoral Researcher led training/development where funding is awarded for a specific piece of training or development activity that is not on offer at Westminster. Funds would cover costs of hosting a training event which would be open to all doctoral researchers.

5. Expenses related to mitigating the impact of Covid-19 on the doctoral research project. Examples could include online subscription fees, copying fees or equipment costs
