  • Residency: for a full award (fees plus annual stipend) you must be a UK citizen and/or have resided in the UK for a minimum of three years prior to application; EU residents are eligible for fee-only awards. If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact [email protected].
  • Discipline: ESRC funding at Roehampton is available only for the pathways listed above; research topics which do not fall under these areas are not eligible for ESRC funding.
