Tim Newling Fieldwork Fund

A generous donation from a former student, Mr Timothy J Newling, has allowed us to establish a fund to provide students with financial assistance that helps with travel associated with academic projects that cannot be funded by other means. This could help with fieldwork or travel to a conference, or other academic-related travel costs. Students would be expected to apply directly to Birkbeck in the first instance for cases involving financial hardship.

Applicants should be enrolled on a BSc, or postgraduate (PhD, MPhil or Master's) degree at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Birkbeck. Applicants should complete an application form [PDF] and return it to Dr Charlie Underwood. (email: Applications can be made throughout the year.
