What it covers

Up to £10,000 towards the cost of study. Grants can be used towards research materials, travel, academic fees and, where appropriate, accommodation.

Who can apply

1. Applicants must be British or Spanish nationals who are or will be engaged in university studies at postgraduate level (masters and doctoral programmes) in either the UK or Spain.

2. The research should have some connection to links between the United Kingdom and Spain in any field of academic interest.

3.  At the time of application, candidates should be undergraduates in their final year or graduates with bachelors or advanced degrees preparing to conduct further degree-level work in their fields of study. We regret that we cannot accept applications for postdoctoral research or fellowship positions (postdocs).

4. Candidates should already have been unconditionally accepted for their postgraduate degrees at the University of their choice and be able to provide written confirmation of this (a scanned copy of the acceptance letter or confirmation of enrolment will suffice). Candidates currently enrolled at a university yet planning a visiting research stay at a different institution must provide acceptance documents from both institutions.

The deadline for applications is usually in April each year.
