Reading Time: < 1 minute

It’s that time of year again when we open our Online Summary Application Form for our next round of PhD studentship applications, for projects starting in October 2015.  The deadline for summary applications is Friday 2 May 2014.

Last Time

Our last round saw an all time record number of studentship applications.  We received 24 summary applications and went on to fund five of these – attracting new researchers and institutes.

Promising Young Researchers

Our PhD studentship grants allow us to attract and fund promising young scientists starting their careers in MND research and to help us continue to develop the UK basic research capacity.  As with all our research projects, we aim to fund the ‘best of the best’.  Our rigorous application process allows us to ensure we only fund studentships of the highest quality and of direct relevance to MND.  To find out more on our application process please see our website.

We are currently funding 14 studentships, with five of these due to start in October 2014.

We hope this year’s PhD studentship round is as exciting as last year!
