Postgraduate Research Studentship extensions
(5 February 2021)
We have now received nearly 80 applications for the first wave of panels meeting this month to assess applications for postgraduate research studentship extensions under the UKRI/Durham COVID-19 extension scheme. Results will be communicated by the end of the month. We now invite other studentship-holders starting prior to 1 March 2020 who have not previously applied for and/or received an extension to apply for Wave 2. The closing date will be 22 February 2021. Full details and an application form can be found here.
We previously announced in January that United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI), had awarded the University additional funds to support extension funding for those UKRI-funded students with end dates from 1 April 2021 who started prior to 1 March 2020 whose research has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The University will provide funded extensions on the same basis as UKRI to studentships it funds (e.g. Durham Doctoral Studentships, co-funding).
