The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science is delighted to announce the Collaborative Competition for 2018.

In this supervisor-led competition, ‘Collaborative’ is defined broadly and covers collaboration with private sector companies, public sector bodies or third sector organisations. Up to 8 awards will be made in 2018.

The lead supervisor must be a member of an HEI in Scotland that is accredited to hold studentships within their disciplinary pathway and must have undergone supervisor training within their institution within the last 5 years. Second supervisors may be social scientists within any of the SGSSS’s 16 partner HEIs. Where a successful proposal involves cross-institutional supervision then it is expected that the DTP will provide funding to the lead institution with secondary funding arrangements established with the other institution (a 70/30 model is commonly deployed).

Applicants should clearly indicate how they plan to advertise and recruit a student to carry out the studentship. Successful applicants should be in place to begin a +3 or 1+3 studentship by October 2018.
