In this section
The Graduate School offers dedicated funding to current students to support activity essential to their research. Separately, a range of studentships (including full awards) are available on a competitive basis for both prospective students and for those in the early stages of their studies.
Dedicated funds are available to support postgraduate research in several ways at Goldsmiths
Funding to support research (current students only)
Postgraduate research students are able to apply for support from the Graduate School Fund to attend conferences, organise student-led conferences and for student-generated publication ideas. There are three deadlines a year for applications to this fund and full details of how to make an application can be found on the dedicated Graduate School Fund page. Current students are also encouraged to check with their Department’s Postgraduate Research Administrator for any opportunities for support funding they may be able to offer.
Studentships and scholarships (prospective and current students)
Goldsmiths is pleased to be part of three prestigious Research Council-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), which provide both training and funded studentships to talented Home and EU students. The three DTPs each include a number of partner Universities, all of which offer funding and an enriching collaborative training experience. Full details of funding available via each of the DTPs, including how to apply, can be found on the dedicated pages for each below. Our applicants (whether prospective students or students in their first year of study) are advised to check eligibility and enquire early if they wish to apply.
- Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) via the CHASE consortium
- Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) via the SeNSS consortium
- Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPRCS) via the iGGi Programme
Applicants are also encouraged to check their Department web pages for additional funding opportunities they are able to offer for doctoral study.
The Alternative Guide to PhD Funding is an external resource giving both current and prospective students access to a large database of potential funding options via charities, foundations and trusts.
Goldsmiths has purchased a license for this resource, which is free to use for current students. Further information (and pin access for prospective students) is available via Guide to external funding sources web page.
