ESRC funding provides full support for home tuition fees, and an annual tax-free maintenance stipend.

Financial support towards training costs (equipment, surveys, conference attendance, etc) can be sought through the NWSSDTP following registration onto the PhD.

CASE studentship competition

The NWSSDTP also runs an annual collaborative studentship competition (CASE) where academics from the four NWSSDTP institutions can apply for funding towards postgraduate projects that will be co-supervised with a representative from a non-HEI partner organisation.
