The NWSSDTP’s fully-funded ESRC studentships cover payment of tuition fees for the duration of the studentship (including master’s and training years for 1+3 and 2+2 studentships) and an annual maintenance stipend (full-time: £15,009, part-time: £7,504.50 for 2019/20). Further information about the studentships, including residential eligibility, can be found in the CASE Studentship Application paperwork and the Standard Studentship Application paperwork. Applications are now open and will be closing on Monday 3 February 2020 at 5pm.
