Apply now for ESRC Studentship Awards

Apply now for ESRC studentship awards to join our Innovation and Sustainability: Management and Policy course, part-based at the STEPS Centre.

Open to all UK and EU students, the ESRC studentships at the Sussex ESRC Doctoral Training Centre pathways are designed to dovetail with both the University’s Research Themes and the ESRC’s Strategic Challenges in ways that maximise the expertise of Sussex researchers and supervisors to enable doctoral researchers in the DTC to find answers to the world’s problems.

For UK students, funding provides fees and a generous stipend. For EU students funding provides the fees for three years, if you already have your Msc.


The deadline for applications is 17th of January with a start in September 2014

Look at the section Innovation and Sustainability: Management Policy on the Sussex DTC webpage:
