NWCDTP Placement Scheme
We support doctoral researchers to collaborate with non-University partners to further the reach and impact of academic research.
Projects are financially supported through an extension to the scholarship for a duration equivalent to the length of the project. All AHRC-funded postgraduate researchers (including fees-only funded PGRs) who will be in their three-year funded period at the time of the proposed placement are eligible to apply. Placements must start before the end of the awarded period.
PhD researchers can either respond to our Partner-Led opportunities, when these are advertised throughout the year, or apply with their own placement project through the Researcher-led strand, according to the process outlined below.
For full details on the scheme, with information on eligibility, funding and reporting requirements, please read the Guidance Document.
