Additional ESRC allocation – further extension to funding

UBEL DTP has received a small allocation of funding from ESRC to further support students. The allocation of funding will be assessed on a needs priority basis and will cover stipend costs only (up to a maximum of 3 months). 

We aim to try and provide additional support in particular to disabled students, those with long term illness, who are neurodivergent, or who have caring responsibilities. However, all UBEL funded students will have equal access and consideration in the decision-making process – this includes students that may have received a UKRI funded extension earlier this year. 

Students that have already submitted their doctoral thesis are not eligible for funding. 

Students that want to apply for the additional funding must complete the form below by Friday 18th June
