This webinar will provide prospective applicants with further information and guidance on the PhD Studentship scheme and application process.
PhD Studentship awards embed the 3Rs in the training of graduate scientists from a broad range of scientific backgrounds. Applications from any area of medical, biological or veterinary research are within remit; those that integrate a range of disciplines or include an industrial partner are particularly encouraged. This competition is run annually and awards of either three or four years duration with a value of £30k (non-FEC) per annum are available. The budget for the 2021 call is £1.08 million. As part of our continued collaboration, up to two additional joint awards are available with the British Heart Foundation (BHF), with a value of £30k (non-FEC) per annum for three years.
For further information on the PhD Studentship scheme, including an informal outline application form, visit the Grants & funding pages.
Applicants are advised to read and refer to the NC3Rs Applicant and Grant Holder Handbook, particularly Section 4.4 Studentship Scheme – Application Guidance, which contains more detailed information on submitting both an outline and full application.
Deadline for submission is 4pm, 12 May 2021.
