HSS PGRs Andrew McCaldon, Jennifer New and Anna Burton talk about applying to research council funding.


Further potential sources of funding can be identified using the University of Liverpool's Postgraduate Funding Search.

Current students can find out more about financial support for conference attendance and other research expenses by speaking to their School PGR Administrator, and through the fortnightly PGR Bulletin.
