Funding Support

Grand Union DTP ESRC students have access to a range of additional funding opportunities to support their studies and development.  

Details on each scheme can be found on the menu to the left. These have been developed and are run under the general guidelines of the ESRC which are outlined in the Postgraduate Funding Guide.

Applications for all forms of funding must be submitted in advance of the activity as per the guidance and procedures available on the relevant pages of the left-hand menu.

Please be advised that due to the implications of COVID-19, the funding application form and process have now been updated accordingly and the application process for some schemes may now include additional steps, such as the requirement for a departmental and COVID-19 risk assessment for any funding applications involving travel. Please ensure to read the complete guidance documentation for the relevant funding scheme to which you are applying for further details on current requirements and expectations for 2020/21. 

As per ESRC guidelines, the DTP is not permitted to fund any travel (or associated costs) to countries the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against visiting. For the purposes of Covid-19 travel guidance, non-essential travel includes OIVs, placements, training and conferences.
