The Thomas Young Centre can provide financial support to TYC academic members to support high profile visitors to the centre for either collaborative research and/or to contribute to the TYC events programme, for example to present at a masterclass.  Visits can be funded for up to three months.

We particularly encourage high quality research projects relating to TYC activity and reciprocal learning opportunities.

Funding is available towards travel, subsistence, and accommodation expenses.  The visitor should submit a proposal and estimated costs to the host prior to agreement for funding. Expenses will be reimbursed at the end of the visit, up to the agreed amount.
