STFC postgraduate studentships enable promising scientists and engineers to continue training beyond a first degree. All studentship projects supported through STFC funding must fall within STFC remit. Details of the areas of science covered by STFC are available on the STFC website.
These pages provide information about STFC studentship awards for students, supervisors, Training Grant Co-ordinators and administrative officers at Research Organisations (universities, Institutions or other Independent Research Organisation eligible to receive Research Council funding).
Doctoral Training Partnership studentships and CASE studentships will be awarded to Research Organisation Departments in the form of a Training Grant (TG).
Further information on TGs can also be found in the TG Frequently Asked Questions document. All studentships funded from the TG are also subject to the terms and conditions set out in this document.
These pages provide full information about STFC studentship awards and are aimed at students, supervisors and administration officers at higher education institutions.
