The Small Expenses fund is for individual UEA/NRP staff, students and postgraduate researchers to claim expenses related to their public and community engagement activity (see examples below of activity funded with the help of the Small Expenses Fund)
Applications can be made by academics, postgraduate researchers and students from UEA/NRP. It is not for UEA faculties or schools.
Please note: the purpose of the small expenses fund is to engage external, non-UEA people with UEA research. The fund supports activity which is designed for a non-expert, external audience.
Applications to the fund need to be made using the form below:
Please email the form to: firstname.lastname@example.org
