The Funding

The Schools of Anthropology and Conservation, Economics, Politics and International Relations, and Psychology are inviting applications for a number of research scholarships. Applicants will submit their own research proposal in these competitions.

You can apply for:

  • a Division of Human and Social Sciences Research Scholarship. This scholarship, also known as a Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA), is for PhD applicants only.
  • ESRC-funded studentships as part of the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP); we welcome applications for PhD (+3) and Master’s+PhD (1+3) awards. This opportunity is available to applicants to the Schools of Anthropology and Conservation, Politics and International Relations, and Psychology only.

The Division of Human and Social Sciences Research Scholarships are also known as Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs). Awardees of such hold a unique position in the University; they are both registered PhD students in receipt of a scholarship and employees of the University. The GTAs will cover either part or all tuition fees (the rate is specified in the individual School adverts) plus a combined maintenance grant and salary, equivalent to the Research Councils UK National Minimum Doctoral Stipend (2021/2022 was £15,609, 2022/23 to be announced).

SeNSS is one of only 14 UK ESRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships and will be offering a number of full-funded ESRC doctoral studentship to start in September 2022. To find out more about eligibility, see the SeNSS page. The awards offer a doctoral stipend (equivalent to the Research Councils UK National Minimum Doctoral Stipend) plus tuition fees at the Home rate and access to further research funding. If you are applying as an international candidate, Kent will waive the difference between Home and International fees.
