Durham Doctoral Fellowships 2009
Scheme for 2008/9
The University offers a generous package of support to outstanding doctoral
research students as Durham Doctoral Fellowships. The scheme provides:
Full payment of tuition fees at home or overseas rate
A maintenance stipend at the national rate (£12,940 in 2008/9)
A research training support grant (£1,000 in 2008/9)
An allowance to attend a UK-Grad School
Applicants must meet the standard University and department admissions
criteria and have applied to the University for admission in the session
2008/9, as a registered research student, to a course of full-time study for a
PhD. Students who are already registered for a PhD course are not eligible to
apply for an award.
Where applicants are eligible they must submit an application for external
funding e.g. to a Research Council or other sponsor. If successful, the
applicant would use the external funding in place of the Doctoral Fellowship
funds. In this case Fellowship holders would retain the title and rights of
other Doctoral Fellows.
Nature of Awards
Awards will normally be extended for another two years subject to progress
being deemed satisfactory by the academic department and the Graduate School's
Postgraduate Awards Sub-Committee. If extended, the award would continue to
provide a full waiver of fees, a maintenance award at the nationally agreed
rate and a research training support grant.
Doctoral Fellows will be required to participate in a programme of academic
activities designed to further enhance their development as researchers.
Details of this programme will be provided to Fellowship holders at the start
of their programme of study.
Applications and Deadlines
Applicants should submit an application for postgraduate study using the
standard on-line application procedure; there is no separate application form.
In the standard on-line application form, in the section entitled "References,
Finance and Funding", you should state that you wish to be considered for a
Doctoral Fellowship in response to the question concerning how you intend to
finance your studies (you should also mention any other applications you
intend to make for financial support or sources of income already obtained).
Only those on-line applications submitted by 03:00 GMT on Monday 18 February
2008 will be considered for a Doctoral Fellowship. All additional
documentation (references, transcripts etc) must have been received in the
Graduate School by Friday 29 February 2008. Successful candidates will be
notified of their award on Friday 4 April 2007; unfortunately, unsuccessful
candidates will not be notified and so we would like to thank all applicants
now for their interest in Durham University.
