Difficult Language Training

The Grand Union DTP offers its award holders additional support to acquire or develop a working ability with a difficult language in order to carry out fieldwork (including UK fieldwork). This may take the form of an extension to the studentship or financial support to access training. 

Funding is available in the doctoral phase of the award, and the level of support will depend on the award length, prior training and the type of language.

Applications will be reviewed at three points throughout the year, and for 2018-19 the deadlines are:

  • 31 January 2019
  • 30 April 2019
  • 31 July 2019

To apply for funding you must submit an application by the relevant deadline which allows the application to be considered before the start of the training, and approximately three months before any proposed travel. Please ensure you read the guidelines for further details on the scheme and applying for support.
