2016-17 Santander Mobility Funding: NOW OPEN

Santander  Logo


In 1996 Emilio Botín, Chairman of Santander, decided that the bank should be useful to the communities in which it operates. With the conviction that the University is a vital cornerstone of development and progress, the division began to grow and so did its global outreach; eventually expanding into more than 20 countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Portugal and the UK. So far, Santander Universities has donated over €1 billion in the shape of scholarships, mobility grants, support for special projects and academic and non-academic awards.

The University of Lincoln has been awarded funding to extend Santander’s mandate for internationalisation and innovation, and are pleased to announce a new call dedicated to support for research undertaken by our postgraduate research students.

Open to all postgraduate research students

Award Amount: Up to £500 per student.

Eligibility Criteria:

Awards are available to postgraduate research students who seek to realise an innovative research project that complements their subject of study and the interests of their respective School or College. Applications should be for projects that have not yet taken place and full costing should be provided as a part of the application. Whilst £500 is the highest level of award available, not all awards will be at this level and applicants are asked to think carefully about the total cost of the project, and where additional funds may be secured if required.

Priority will be given to students who intend to work alongside a Santander Universities Network member and where demonstrable links are made to research and/or academics at Lincoln with a focus on or in the Santander network areas. 


If you would like an application form please email all completed forms must be sent to the Graduate School

Deadline for applications: 9th March 2017

 The 2017 BFWG scholarships competition is now open.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 24th March 2017

Please go to and look under Scholarships to find out details of the application process and of eligibility.  The competition is open to women doctoral students (PhD, DPhil or equivalent) at British universities (not Northern Ireland) who began full time doctoral studies between September 1st 2014 and October 31st 2015 (or the part time equivalent) are eligible to apply and who will not be submitting their thesis before the end of February 2018.  

 In 2012 we celebrated one hundred years since BFWG (originally the British Federation of University Women) first gave an award to a woman postgraduate to support her research.  Now in our second century of award-giving, we look forward each year to the variety and quality of the applications we receive.
