Pathway Training Fund
The Pathway Training Fund supports advanced and specialist training events for PhD students across Scotland.
The fund can cover speaker’s travel, accommodation, student travel, catering and related logistical costs. The funding limit is usually £2,500 for single discipline/pathway events. Multi-day events and interdisciplinary/joint pathway events can be proposed with higher funding requests.
Pathway Reps/colleagues must discuss their PTF application with their Pathway Convenor prior to submission. Once approved, applicants must submit their application via the form below. Applications will then be reviewed by the SGSSS Directorate and forwarded on to the relevant Hub leads to decide on which applications go forward for funding.
Please complete the application form (located below) in conjunction with the associated PTF Guidance.
Application Deadline: 29 July 2022 (for events running between September 2022 and August 2023)
- Planned events must be at least 6 weeks from the deadline date.
- We now have a deadline for receiving PTF event invoices of two months post event. Any SGSSS agreement to fund PTF events lapses if no invoice is received within this deadline.
- By submitting an application or receiving an award, pathways are still expected to participate in the SGSSS Hub Festivals. Please also consider if your proposed PTF event will be manageable alongside the Advanced Training Programme and Summer School events.
