Projects seek to boost minority postgraduate researcher numbers


OfS and Research England allocate £8 million to diversity initiatives covering admissions and research culture

Nearly £8 million of government money is being channelled to 13 projects that hope to tackle persistent barriers to Black, Asian and minority ethnic students taking up postgraduate research.

Funded by Research England and the Office for Students, the projects are intended to improve access into research in England and to enhance research culture and the experience of BAME postgraduate students. The initiatives include targeting approaches to recruitment and admissions to increase the number of BAME female professors, and developing fair selection models for historically marginalised postgraduate research students at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
