AHRC DTP studentships provide funding to enable eligible students to undertake graduate study. Students are selected via a competitive process based on their application to undertake graduate study at the University of Oxford.
A full award (for eligible students ordinarily resident in the UK) for full-time study normally covers:
- University tuition fees
- College fees (which are normally paid by the University).
- A maintenance grant (at the rate of the Research Councils UK national minimum doctoral stipend, which in 2016-17 was £14,296 for 12 months). If the award is for a period of less than 12 months in any year, the grant is reduced pro-rata to reflect the number of days for which a student is enrolled on-course.
A fees-only award (for students ordinarily resident in an EU country other than the UK) covers the cost of University tuition fees (college fees are normally paid by the University). The award does not include a maintenance grant.
Further information about University fees can be found at: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/fees-and-funding/tuition-and-college-fees
Both types of studentships may include:
- Additional allowances for disabled students, where appropriate.
- Additional support towards the costs of fieldwork, presenting at conferences abroad, or study visits for students pursuing doctoral research, by application.
Studentship funding is adjusted on a pro-rata basis for part-time awards.
