Doctoral Training Partnerships 2
Through Doctoral Training Partnerships 2 (DTP2), funding for 235 notional studentships was awarded per annum for five NERC funded studentship cohort intakes into the DTPs from October 2019.
This funding supports the students' stipends, fees and research training support grant, and allows for training opportunities to develop the technical skills, professional skills and experience of students at each DTP. Each DTP must ensure, over the five years of student starts, that 25% of their total NERC funded studentships are CASE (collaborative) studentships.
NERC DTPs award studentships on behalf of NERC and the DTPs themselves should be contacted for all studentship queries. The DTPs oversee the entire process of awarding PhD studentships and award studentships at their own discretion.
Please do not contact NERC for information concerning applying for studentships.
