Cohort Development Grants

The DTP has funding available for pathways to use for conferences or events that support cohort building, especially those that bring together students from different geographical locations. Twice a year we welcome applications from pathway conveners for up to £3,000 per application; these may be joint applications for proposals that involve multiple pathways.

Application Process

Pathways conveners should use the Wales DTP application form to bid under this scheme. You can bid for any amount up to a maximum of £3,000. Please outline what activities are proposed, the anticipated timescales, and how the activities will be organised. Specific detail should be provided as to how the activities connect with the pathway and its development. You should also provide costings. Please include details of any funding applied for or received from other sources. The value of any financial contribution towards costs will be taken into consideration when assessing applications.

Completed application forms should be returned to

Application Deadline

The next deadline for applications is at noon on Friday 29 June 2018.

Selection Process

A Wales DTP assessment panel will consider Cohort Development grant applications.  The funds should be used within 12 months.  All expenditure must be auditable and a breakdown of the costs incurred supported by copies of invoices will be required at the end of the activity.   Reimbursement will be made following receipt and processing of expenses paperwork.  The DTP will issue a questionnaire following activity completion to ascertain information that will be required for ESRC annual reporting purposes.

Application outcomes will be announced at the end of August 2018.
