    For postgrads, that is.

    There are a bunch of small charities that offer some funding (small amounts, a couple of hundred quid at most), and I'm going to send letters to a bunch of them, and hopefully a few of them will be able to help me out, though I don't expect much.


    Would it make much difference if I contacted them before I received my offer, or should I wait until March or so, by which time I should have my offer?

    Many of the charities don't seem to specify deadlines.

    I doubt they'll be interested in offering money to people who aren't definitely on courses. In my experience they want receipts at the end of the course to give a grant, not before or during.

    That's really interesting. Have you direct experience with them yourself?

    Yes. With 2. Both awarded grants and paid at the end of the course.
