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.
All applications should be submitted to SGSSS Hub Leads via the relevant SGSSS Pathway Convenor. Details of the SGSSS governance structure can be found here.
Please complete this form in conjunction with the associated PTF Guidance.
Application Deadline: 30 July 2021 (for events running between 1 August 2021 and 31 July 2022)
- 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.
