The Expeditions Fund for summer 2017/18 will open for applications at the start of Semester 2 on the 8 January 2018
The QMUL Expeditions Fund 2016/17 offers financial assistance to undergraduate and postgraduate students for expeditions they may wish to undertake during the summer 2017 vacation. Travel must be on or between the dates 9 June – 18 September 2017 inclusive. An expedition can be any kind of purposeful travel or outdoor pursuit, as an individual or in a group, in the UK or abroad. It can be connected to your academic and personal interests but should not be a compulsory part of your course such as a Medical or Dental Elective. Last year awards helped students to travel to Austria, China, France, Finland, India and Italy; to volunteer in Cambodia, Colombia, Morocco and Senegal; to go on medical exchanges in Brazil, Malta, Palestine and Sri Lanka; to attend conferences in Cambridge; summer schools in Berlin, Kentucky, Leeds, Moscow, San Francisco, Shanghai and to carry out research in Essex, Helgeland, Lamu, Punjab, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore and Yorkshire.
The Fund is made up of two small endowments left to the university by previous scholars specifically for travel during the long summer vacation, QMUL funds and a generous donation from the Queen Mary Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is provided by the Alumni Network which provides important financial support to students and enables them to experience additional opportunities for academic and personal development www.qmul.ac.uk/alumni
