How to apply
The ESRC North West Doctoral Training Centre (NWDTC) awarded 458 postgraduate studentships between 2011/12 and 2016/17, across a wide range of social science disciplines within the universities of Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester.
In 2016, the NWDTC was awarded a further six years of funding by the ESRC to continue its work as a consortium. The consortium expanded to include Keele University, and was renamed the North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP). ESRC fudning from 2017/18 onwards will be available through this new initiative, and further details can be found here: http://www.nwdtc.ac.uk/how-to-apply/
