SCDTP social sciences funding
Fund your social sciences PhD through the ESRC SCDTP
If you start a social sciences PhD programme in the 2017/18 academic year at the University of Portsmouth, you could get funding through the ESRC South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP).
The studentships are for social science research in Psychology and Area Studies subjects.
As well as covering all programme fees, the studentship also includes an annual maintenance grant, which is £14,482 in 2017/18.
The SCDTP is a doctoral training partnership (DTP) between the universities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Brighton. There are 36 studentships available each year for social science students carrying out PhD studies (+3) or Master’s and PhD studies (1+3) at these three universities.
The studentships are funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
