Grants Related to Academic Work
If you have particularly pressing needs for IT or similar equipment, you should approach your Department in the first instance. In a small number of cases, where university and Departmental assistance is demonstrably inappropriate, the College might be willing to consider a modest loan to help you buy such equipment, but this would always be subject to individual circumstance and assessed by the Graduate Tutors and Tutorial Bursar.
Projects which fall outside the definition of essential research expenses but are still of benefit to your academic work may be eligible for a College grant. You should apply on the standard College grant application form, giving full details of the project, costs and all other funding.
