The Lorraine Lim Fund supports postgraduates in the School of Arts wishing to organise research events to explore, develop, and share their research interests, while gaining skills in writing a proposal, putting together a budget, advertising, and organising the event.
This postgraduate fund is named after Dr Lorraine Lim. Until her untimely death in 2017, Dr. Lim was Lecturer in Arts Management in the Department of Film, Media and Cultural Studies. As Co-Director of Birkbeck Interdisciplinary Research in Media and Culture (BIRMAC), she had a part in initiating its Graduate Student Competition. This fund commemorates and continues her work, extending the original idea by offering annual prizes to support student led initiatives in Research Centres across the School.
