UKCISA offer international student support grants

UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) has launched a new grants scheme to support pilot projects and research. The scheme is open to UKCISA members and provides an opportunity for universities, colleges and students' unions to expand or adapt services which support international students or enhance members' understanding of the international student experience and, at the same time, contribute to national and sector policy and good practice.

Scheme aims

The aims of this scheme are twofold:

Pilot projects: to encourage innovation, and develop and disseminate
   examples of best practice in international student support (ten grants of
   up to £2,000).

Research: to enhance UKCISA's understanding of the needs and/or
   experience of international students studying in the UK (two grants of
   up to £5,000).

How to apply

UKCISA members are invited to submit proposals for pilot projects or research they will carry out. Both will be required to present projects or research findings in an appropriate format for the benefit of the membership as a whole. This may include a presentation at a future UKCISA conference.

Applicants should complete the application form and email it to the UKCISA Director of Policy and Services by 5pm on Friday 21 August 2015.
