ESRC Studentship holders are eligible to apply for an extension of their doctoral award to support additional training in a difficult language. This includes both training in the field and in the UK.
The ESRC also makes a limited amount of funding available to Doctoral Training Partnerships to support the overseas fieldwork costs of full-time studentship holders.
We encourage students to check official travel advice before they make any fieldwork plans.
Applications may be submitted throughout the year.
