There is a range of ways in which PhD students can fund their studies, including

  • Hallam studentships - SHU funds bursaries across the University each academic year and CRESR usually is able to access a small number of these competitive awards. The next recruitment process for these bursaries, for which fees are available to UK citizens and EU nationals only, will begin in November 2017, with a deadline at the end of January. See University studentships
  • White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership scholarships. As part of the WRDTP, CRESR nominates exceptional PhD applicants from these prestigious ESRC-funded scholarships.
