***** ESRC STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR 2013 ACROSS 24 ACADEMIC PATHWAYS *****

 

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science is a unique collaboration between Universities in Scotland to make available outstanding research training to doctoral students in the social sciences. The aim of the Scottish Graduate School is to improve both the quantity and quality of postgraduate research provision in the social sciences across Scotland.

At the heart of the Graduate School is the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre in Scotland. Established in 2011 as the biggest in ESRC's UK-wide network of training centres, the Scottish DTC offers ESRC-accredited training in 24 different pathways. Pathways are broadly analogous to academic disciplines. Each pathway involves collaboration across a number of Scottish universities to make sure the best expertise gets to the right students.

The ESRC has awarded 65 full studentships annually to the Scottish DTC for each of the next five years, with the first intake in September 2011. To find out which training pathways are available at which institutions, click here, and to find out how to apply for studentships click here.
