IATL's Student Funding Opportunities

The Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning's core business is to foster teaching and learning that is committed to innovation, interdisciplinarity, inclusiveness and internationalisation. IATL's Student funding opportunities are in place to help support innovative student projects under the following three strands: Research, Collaboration and Performance.

Your application should specify the ways in which you will address some or all of IATL's aims; you should explain how the outcomes of your project will be disseminated within and beyond your department and how they will impact on teaching and learning in your department. All projects require an academic mentor.

The following funding streams are available:

  

1. Student as Producer (Research) grants

IATL's Student as Producer (Research) funding is available to undergraduate students and taught Masters students only. You may apply for up to £1000 for your project, although we welcome applications for smaller sums. Funded projects must be for research of your own devising, and work must be unrelated to anything you are required to do as part of a course. Similarly work completed as part of your funded project must not later be submitted for assessment.

Deadlines for applications:

  • Midnight on Wednesday 07 December 2016
  • Midnight on Wednesday 15 March 2017
  • Midnight on Wednesday 28 June 2017

2. Student as Producer (Collaboration) grants

IATL's Student as Producer (Collaboration) funding is available to undergraduate and taught Masters students only. You may apply for up to £2000 for your project, although we welcome applications for smaller sums. The key citerion for this funding stream is that projects must be collaborative and student led. We encourage you to consider the word 'collaboration' in a wide and innovative sense. Projects should always involve more than one Warwick student but you might also wish to work together with a wider interdisciplinary group of students, with members of staff, or with members of the local or international community. Your project must relate to at least one of IATL's key themes, listed above, and must show evidence of an impact on teaching/learning.

Deadlines for applications:

  • Midnight on Wednesday 07 December 2016
  • Midnight on Wednesday 15 March 2017
  • Midnight on Wednesday 28 June 2017

 

3. Student as Producer (Performance) grants

IATL's Student as Producer (Performance) funding is available to both postgraduate (PGR and PGT) and undergraduate students. You may apply for up to £500 for your performance project which must cover any technical costs, e.g. guidance from an approved theatre technician. Rehearsal and performance space in IATL's spaces is provided.

Deadlines for applications:

  • Midnight on Wednesday 07 December 2016 for performance slots in the spring term of 2016-17
