ESRC Studentships are available in a number of programmes. Individual programme entries detail which programmes are eligible for ESRC funding. Find your graduate programme.
A minimum of 30 studentships are available each year.
Funding can cover a one year's research training master's linked to a three year PhD, a two-year MRes linked to two years of study or a three-year PhD programme. Find out more about these different award types.
Each academic department is responsible for nominating students for funding.
LSE's DTP covers a large range of research programmes within the School, and awards are spread across departments.
The ESRC are keen to see students involved in collaboration with non Higher Education partners (charities, private sector, public sector) and if you have an existing involvement with an organisation which might support your research, and which might benefit from your work in doing so, you should flag this up on your application.
