This article will explain the funding available to postgraduate research students at the University.

There are tools to help you apply for additional funding including The Alternative Guide to Funding which can be accessed using your University email address and registering as a new user in the green box (option 1).

Charities, Trusts and Research Councils also provide research funding, further information can be found by on the Research Professional website, though you will need your University of Portsmouth email address to login and access this. Please note that most of these funders operate to strict closing dates for submissions so please read the guidelines very carefully and give yourself plenty of time to prepare a submission.
