Collaborative Doctoral Awards
We are delighted to open applications for organisations to work in partnership with a Higher Education Institution as part of our Collaborative Doctoral Awards.
Collaborative Doctoral Awards provide funding for PhD-level research projects which are developed in partnership between Higher Education Institutions and non-HEI organisations or businesses. The funding is awarded to the HEI and the student receives a stipend.
The awards are intended to encourage and develop collaboration and partnerships providing opportunities for doctoral students to gain first-hand experience of work outside the university environment and enhance the employment-related skills and training a research student gains during the course of their award.
The projects also encourage and establish links that can have long-term benefits for both collaborating partners, providing access to resources and materials, knowledge and expertise that may not otherwise have been available and also provide social, cultural and economic benefits to wider society.
Organisational partners are invited to submit project proposals to the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH), which will then be circulated to member HEIs across ten universities. The individual HEIs will respond to those partners they are interested in working with. The organisational partner will then select an HEI to work with to take the proposal forward to the formal application stage.
