THE SANTANDER POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH PROJECT FUND 2016/17
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.
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.
This is a thought provoking, enlightening, interesting and challenging workshop that provides delegates with the opportunity for honest self-reflection in a safe environment. Students take time to reflect on what has and still does influence their thoughts, values and opinions.
Through this experiential session the following topics will be covered:
Define unconscious bias
Explain how unconscious bias affects our decision-making
Explain the adverse impact unconscious bias has, both on individuals and organisations
Detect and describe their own biases
Reduce incidents of unfair treatment in the work and study environment
Recognise how different peoples life experiences, upbringings, cultures, backgrounds and protected characteristics affect what we think and how we behave.

BFWG holds a Research Presentations Day each year at which women postgraduate students are invited to give short presentations of their research work to a general audience. A prize of £100 is offered for the presentation judged ‘best’ in terms of quality of presentation and ability to communicate the subject to an educated but general audience. Those interested in making a presentation should go to www.bfwg.org.uk to download an abstract submission form. Abstracts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date for abstracts is Friday April 28th 2017
It may be necessary to make a selection from abstracts submitted if there are too many entries for the time available. Please note: BFWG is not able to pay travel or other expenses.
All undergraduates, postgraduates, members of BFWG and others who are interested will be very welcome to attend the RPD even if they do not wish to submit a paper. There is no charge for bona fide students, whether or not they are presenting a paper, but there is a charge of £10 on the door for others. (A sandwich lunch is provided). The Research Presentations Day is usually a good opportunity to meet other postgraduate women students and to look objectively at the presentation styles of others. It can be a useful learning experience and an opportunity for networking.
If you wish to attend the day please contact: Dr Elizabeth Poskitt: email@example.com if possible before June 3rd 2017 .
