ADR UK Studentship Awards 2023/24

If you are interested in applying for a WRDTP/ADR UK Studentship Award, please refer to the information below for further details. The project listing will feature a named contact for enquiries relating to the studentship opportunity, details on how to apply, and any important deadlines/processes that you should adhere to.

Please note that this process will begin *after* the deadline for students to apply to the WRDTP with their own research project (the WRDTP Pathway and Advanced Quantitative Methods/AQM Awards – 17:00hrs, 25 January 2023). If you have missed the deadline to apply for a Pathway or AQM Award, this is an additional opportunity to apply to the WDRTP for ESRC funding, outside the main studentships competition.

The academic supervisor, and their department/school will manage the shortlisting and interviewing of studentship candidates, and when a suitable candidate has been identified, the chosen student will be nominated to the WRDTP for final approval. Successful candidates will be notified by their institution’s Scholarships Office by the end of April 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter, depending on the individual project’s timeline for student recruitment.

If you have a question regarding applying for a WRDTP/ADR UK Studentship and cannot find an answer online, please contact for further guidance.
