Applying for Funding

There is a lot of competition for funding. Your application needs to be outstanding to be successful.

To improve your chances of securing funding:

  • read the eligibility criteria carefully - they can be very specific and inflexible
  • follow the application guidelines provided by the funding body - each has its own preferred method of application
  • check the closing dates - they can be very early in the academic year

Our How to Apply section includes help with writing personal statements and research proposals.

If you are a current Newcastle University student or recent graduate and need help writing a funding application or a CV to accompany your application, contact the Careers Service.
