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.
