Eaga Charitable Trust have opened their latest round of funding for EU MSc/MA students who are proposing to write a dissertation on a topic linked to fuel poverty within the UK or other EU countries. As a former recipient of their master’s bursary, I definitely recommend applying. Aside from the obvious benefit of £1,000, I found it incredibly useful to have my research proposal and subsequent dissertation assessed by the Eaga trustees, who are all experts in the field.
Information about the bursary is copied below, thanks to Benjamin Christman and Eldin Fahmy for originally posting the information on various mailing lists.
Eaga Charitable Trust Masters bursary awards for research into the causes and impacts of fuel poverty
Eaga Charitable Trust supports research into the causes and impacts of fuel poverty, and solutions to the problem. The Trustees of Eaga Charitable Trust encourage Masters students to write dissertations relating to fuel poverty issues. This is in response to recognition that the pool of academic researchers with an interest in fuel poverty is shrinking as a result of retirement and the fact that younger researchers do not seem to be attracted to the area.
Bursaries of £1,000 are available to UK and EU MSc/MA students who are proposing to write a dissertation on a topic linked to fuel poverty within the UK or other EU countries.
There are two rounds of applications in 2015 and the deadlines are:
1st round deadline: Monday 2nd February 2015.
2nd round deadline: Tuesday 7th April 2015.
