STICERD Research Grants for PhD Students
PhD students, whose supervisor is affiliated to one of STICERD's research programmes, can apply for a grant for their own research.
- Only PhD students whose supervisor is affiliated to one of STICERD's research programmes are eligible to apply. Funding is only awarded to support their PhD research. Their advisor will be asked to provide a supporting statement which confirms this. Each supervisor is allowed to nominate one student per round.
- Applications for funding are considered up to a maximum of £5,000.
Applications are considered on both the intrinsic merit of the proposed research and the value for money that the proposal represents.
Applicants are requested to explain clearly what the objectives are, what methods will be used and why the research is novel. Applications that do not contain this information are unlikely to be approved.
Applications that do not make clear why large budget items (such as overseas trips) are essential to the research may be rejected or be awarded only reduced funding.
Applications will be considered twice a year at the Lent and Summer term meetings of the Steering Committee.
Please note that STICERD requires successful applicants to comply with the LSE's Research Ethics Policy. Submitting a copy of the self-certification or ethical approval to STICERD is required previous to the disbursement of any funds.
The deadline for the first round of applications is on 8 January 2024 (23:59 BST).
The deadline for the second round of applications is on 29 April 2024 (23:59 BST).
