Postgraduate Funding Opportunities 

This year's competition entry is now closed, but details of future opportunities will be posted in due course. 

Below are calls for PGR funding opportunities for black, Asian and minority ethnic groups. 

Research England and the Office for Students 

Research England and the Office for Students are launching a joint funding competition for project proposals to improve access and participation for black, Asian and minority ethnic groups in postgraduate research (PGR) study in the English higher education sector. Together we are making available up to £8 million for this scheme. 

We invite applications from projects that aim to provide evidence of effectiveness and impact on improved access and participation for black, Asian and minority ethnic groups in PGR students. We expect projects to aim to provide exemplars of effective practice and/or transferable insights across the higher education sector. A blog on the competition is also available here. Please send any application queries you may have to pgrcompetition@officeforstudents.org.uk.
