The University of Salford in partnership with Santander has funding to support students wishing to undertake an international or UK visit or project. Travel should improve either your education, employability or entrepreneurship. Applications are accepted from all current University of Salford students (including final year undergraduate students, postgraduate students and international students).
We are particularly interested (although not exclusively), in students or groups of students who have encountered barriers to study before and during their study at the University and can demonstrate how this will benefit themselves and the University.
The programme offers awards of £500, £1,000 & £5,000.
Funding can be used for travel (economy only), accommodation, subsistence and other necessary costs for an overseas visit. There is no set format for your visit/project and examples of activity that could be funded include:
All Santander Award recipients are required to participate fully in the University's donor engagement activity as and when requested to do so. This includes, but is not limited to, providing reports or updates (including photos if appropriate) on the project or work undertaken when requested by a member of University staff, which may then be included in University communications as appropriate. Attending donor thank you events (usually one or two a year) when requested by University staff; allowing details such as your name, course, project and expected year of graduation to be included in public University communications.
Please also note that all successful Santander Universities award recipients must sign an award acceptance agreement, prior to awards being confirmed, and agree to some personal information linked to or submitted as part of their application being shared with Santander Universities (a full explanation of this policy is contained in the award acceptance agreement).
