CHASE Cohort Development Fund

The CHASE Cohort Development Fund is designed to support student-led innovative training and development activities for the cohort of CHASE-funded doctoral researchers.

Examples of what the CDF can fund are:

  • One day conference

  • Networking events

  • Public engagement events

  • writers retreats

The CDF can cover the following costs:

  • Honoraria for guest contributors (not currently contracted to any CHASE institutions)

  • Travel, accommodation and subsistence for all contributors

  • Venue hire costs (for events held at non-CHASE member institutions)

  • Catering for all contributors and participants


For help planning an event CHASE has developed the CHASE CDF toolkit


More information on the CDF can be found on the CHASE website: Or contact Dr Steven Colburn with any queries.
