Doctoral Training Partnerships 2 - NERC

Through Doctoral Training Partnerships 2 (DTP2), funding for 235 notional studentships was awarded for the 2019-20 academic year. DTP awards were for five annual cohort intakes that started from October 2019.

This funding supports the students’ stipends, fees and research training support grant, and allows for training opportunities to develop the technical skills, professional skills and experience of students at each DTP. Each DTP must ensure, over the five years of student starts, that 25% of their total NERC-funded studentships are CASE (collaborative) studentships.

NERC DTPs award studentships on behalf of NERC and the DTPs themselves should be contacted for all studentship queries. The DTPs oversee the entire process of awarding PhD studentships and award studentships at their own discretion.
