College support for student-led workshops, seminars and conferences held in Cambridge

There are number of occasions when students may have the opportunity to organise a workshop, seminar or small conference in Cambridge, either in collaboration with their Research Supervisor or with other students in their research group or department.  Whilst the College is not able to offer direct funding for such events it can offer help by offering the use of a function room free of charge, subject to availability (please check availability using the rooms management system).  (For example, the Nihon room, the Thomas Gray room, or the Old Library).  We are also willing to provide pre-dinner drinks for small groups of workshop/seminar/conference participants or wine with dinner or host guest speakers (in College accommodation) free of charge.  Much depends on the scale of the venture, of course, but this is to signal an aim to offer support.  The extent of support given would follow consideration of a detailed application by Pembroke’s Graduate Tutors, who meet fortnightly during term; you should discuss any application you intend to make with your Graduate Tutor in the first instance. The Tutorial Office are able to advise on the level of recent awards made.
