Travel bursaries for postgraduate students doing essential fieldwork.


Since 2002, UACES has awarded hundreds of travel scholarships to postgraduate students from many different countries.

The scholarships are travel bursaries designed to provide mobility to existing postgraduate students so that they can undertake research in another country. The scholarships are NOT for students looking for funding to enrol in a postgraduate course.

You need to be a PhD Researcher Member of UACES (based in any country) in order to apply for a UACES scholarship.

Deadline 20 Oct 2023
