Postgraduate Funding for University Students through Grants from Charity | GradFunding



About the Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding

The Alternative Guide is the most popular postgraduate funding resource in the UK. It focuses on a major alternative but underutilised source of postgraduate funding: charities and trusts.

Students can use the Alternative Guide to gain charity funding for fees, maintenance, conferences, field trips, and travel! In the past, the Alternative Guide was a book, but now it has been upgraded to this web resource: the Alternative Guide Online (AGO). Individual current and prospective students can purchase an individual licence to use the AGO for 3 months, or 12 months. Alternatively, many universities have a complete institutional licence which enable all current and prospective students to use the Guide for free!

You can see which universities have an AGO right here on our list of subscribers.
