SGSSS Open Collaborative Competition 2021/22
The 2021/22 competition is now complete. Please check back in August 2022 for details of the 2022/23 competition round, including how and when to apply.
The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science is delighted to announce the launch of the SGSSS Open Collaborative Supervisor-led Competition 2021/22
In this supervisor-led competition, ‘Collaborative’ is defined broadly and covers studentships that are supported by private sector companies, public sector bodies or third sector organisations. Approximately 14 awards will be made in 2021/22.
The first supervisor must be a member of a HEI in Scotland that is accredited to hold studentships within their disciplinary pathway, and must have undergone supervisor training within their institution within the last 5 years.
Second supervisors may work within any of the SGSSS 16 partner HEIs. We encourage applicants to consider co-supervision with different universities across our network. You can find full information about the SGSSS partner universities online here.
Please ensure that you read the guidance carefully before applying and watch the introduction and case study videos below. Interested parties should pay particular attention to the expected financial contributions from collaborative partners and the requirements for recruitment in the guidance.
Please submit an application via our new application system, SGSSS Apply, by the deadline of 29 October at 12pm (midday).
