Under these pages we gather all information that is aimed at students who are already ESRC Funded and studying at post-graduate research level in Scotland.

For our studentship holders who intend to go abroad as part of their studies, procedures have changed and we ask that you read the following carefully:

Overseas Fieldwork and Difficult Language Training

An additional allowance is available for students who will undertake overseas fieldwork, and/or those who require language training in order to complete their studies. In both cases, this must have been outlined in your original research proposal for +3 (or doctoral) studentship holders, or before the commencement of the doctoral portion of the studies for those undertaking 1+3 study or similar. Please note that there are 4 deadlines per year.

Overseas Institutional Visits

This allowance represents a paid extension to your course of study for a visit, language training, attendance at relevant seminars or for research specific training, networking etc. not available in the UK. It was introduced by ESRC to support and encourage the international engagement of ESRC funded students. Please note that there are 4 deadlines per year.
