Faculty Research Funding

The Faculty Research Office is responsible for the administration of several research funds. Some of these funds exist due to the generosity of alumni and donors who have established Trusts or Endowment Funds. Other funds are made available by the Faculty and the University. Members of the Faculty Research Committee play a vital role in reviewing funding applications submitted by Health Sciences staff and students.

The Faculty Research Office co-ordinates the application and award processes for the following grants: (click on the name of each fund or grant for more information)

1. FRC Conference Travel Grants

2. FHS Postgraduates Conference Travel Grants

Owing to budgetary constraints, the University Research Office has indicated that no student travel will be funded in the year 2017. There are thus no funds currently available for student travel although the Health Sciences Research Office (HSRO) will be embarking on a fundraising drive to ensure that this fund remains active. Once sufficient funds have been raised, the HSRO will make an open call for applications thereto.
