Resources and support

Conference funding – Humanities Division

PhD students can request overseas conference funding for one conference from the Division of Humanities.

The current maximum amount that can be applied for is $2,500. We generally recommend that a research trip is carried out in conjunction with conference attendance, if possible.

The full policy and application form is available from the Humanities website

Conference/fieldwork funding – Department

PhD students may apply once to the Department for funding to present at an overseas conference or to undertake fieldwork which is essential to their research. The maximum amount that can be applied for is $2,000. This money may be used in conjunction with the Divisional funding.

MA (Thesis) and PhD students may also apply for funding to present papers at the annual NZPSA conference.
