Scholarship and Funding Opportunities
At Lancaster, we are investing in the future of our students by enabling access to a world-class education. We believe that funding concerns should not stop any student with the talent to thrive. There are various scholarships, bursaries and funding opportunities for Linguistics Master's and PhD students.
For “1+3” applications (MA followed by PhD), you must apply for the PhD programme AT LEAST one month before the funding application deadline in order to allow time for your application to be processed. For example, if you are applying for ESRC funding, the deadline is 1 Feb 2023, and you must have applied for a PhD place by 1 Jan 2023.
Please note that unless clearly stated, for all awards, you must have already applied for and accepted an offer of a place on one of the relevant programmes.
