Applications should demonstrate: Research Excellence, Strength of the Collaboration, Research Training Environment and Fit with School plans. The studentship includes stipends, fees and student research and training expenses (consumables, travel, and conferences fees). Minimum stipend and fees for 3 years will be £56,006; Minimum stipend and fees for 3.5 year years will be £65,708. Apart from stipends and PhD fees, students may have access to: Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) which covers travel, conferences, lab consumables, small equipment, facilities, and training courses. These generally range from £200 per year in the Arts and Humanities, to £750 per year in the Social Sciences and £1,650 to £5,000 per year in laboratory Sciences and an overseas fieldwork grant – again dictated by the needs of the project. The ESRC standard allocation equates to around £150pa.
