There are a wide range of possible sources of studentships, scholarships and bursaries you will need to begin your enquiries in good time to meet deadlines.
Quite a lot of our postgraduate students are externally funded. Our students have been supported by governments, grants from funding bodies, sponsors, and private sources too. We highly recommend applicants applying for the funding below also look externally for funding.
Opportunities for the 2015/16 academic year can be found below.
Further studentships for Overseas and EU/UK applicants may become available later in the year. Any eligible applicant with a pending or accepted online application will be sent the details if they become available.
Closing Date: 2 February 2015 (5pm)
Lancaster University forms part of the ESRC's North West Doctoral Training Centre (NWDTC). These scholarships cover tuition and maintenance. Some studentships are reserved for students seeking joint supervision across two or more partner institutions. Students will normally have been offered a place prior to their studentship application. However, studentship applications will be accepted from students who have submitted their institutional application but have yet to receive a formal offer, providing that such an offer has been made by the time of the Studentship Allocation meeting.
Eligibility: +2, 1+3 or +3 funding: UK students eligible for full funding (fees and living expenses) EU students’ fees only funding. EU students resident in the UK for the past 3 years may be eligible for full funding.
Deadline: 2 February 2015
