Travel Grants

The Herchel Smith Scholarships Committee is able to consider applications for small travel grants, in the region of $500 or so, for members of Emmanuel who are:

  • working at Harvard on Master's degree courses, PhD courses, medical elective periods of formal study, and the like;
  • working in Cambridge, for PhDs or as post-docs, who need to attend conferences at Harvard or to spend time working with research colleagues there;
  • post-doctoral research workers, who may apply for grants for travel associated with their work during the course of their time at Harvard, and for travel between Harvard and the UK at the beginning and end of their time at Harvard.

Applicants must be members of Emmanuel who have taken their first degree (not necessarily at Cambridge) not more than five years before the date of travel. Each applicant may apply for the Scholarship only once. The application may cover more than one trip, but there is an overall limit of £1000.

To apply for a Travel Grant, please write via email to the Bursar at Emmanuel College, giving details and estimated costs of the proposed travel and explaining how it relates to your academic studies. If the application is approved, receipts must be submitted before payment is made. Holders of Herchel Smith Scholarships are not eligible. Applications must be submitted not more than two months before the date of travel. Applications will be considered in order of receipt for as long as funds are available in any one financial year, running from 1 August to 31 July.
