Staff Development Group Fund

The Institute allocates a small amount of funding to support staff development activities and IAHS staff and PhD students can apply to the SDG for funds if applications for external funding, either through their research grant funding body, Principal's excellence fund or other sources are unsuccessful.  The criteria for applications can be found in the application form below.  Conferences and courses attended should be in line with the objectives set at the Annual Review.  Applications will be assessed by two SDG group members not belonging to the applicant's research group.  Successful applicants will be expected to submit a short (1 A4 page) report to the SDG within two months of the conference/course.  Reports will be available to view on the SDG web page.
