Funding Opportunities

The Institute offers funding from the Wakefield Scholarship Fund (for applicants born or educated in Australia, Canada or New Zealand) and the Manuel López-Rey Studentship Fund (which is open to all applicants).

A number of applicants are also put forwardby the department each year for ESRC studentships, which fund tuition fees at the Home rate and provide contributions towards living expenses and additional study opportunities. Students eligible for 1+3 ESRC doctoral training funding and interested in studying for a PhD at the Institute of Criminology should state this in their MPhil in Criminological Research application. In the ‘Research’ section they should provide a brief summary of the research topic they would like to pursue and list two possible supervisors. Progression to the PhD programme will be dependent on meeting the standard admissions criteria

For further information on ESRC studentships and other possible sources of funding, please see Funding Opportunities webpage on the Institute of Criminology website.
