The University of Salford has funding to support students wishing to undertake an international visit or project. The award will support travel to the following countries, preferably at a Santander University Partner.
Applications will be accepted from all current University of Salford students (including final year undergraduate students, postgraduate students and international students). We are particularly interested 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.
To apply for funding applicants must submit an online application detailing their project and the need for funding, criteria will be checked and a judging panel will determine if funding is awarded.

Due to the competitive nature and amount of applications received in-depth feedback cannot always be provided.
