ESRC Steers Competition
We seek applications for proposals from supervisors for studentships that meet the criteria for the above awards as set out in the following Guidance on Steers and Targets.
The lead supervisor must be a member of an 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’s 16 partner HEIs. Where a successful proposal involves cross-institutional supervision then it is expected that the DTP will provide funding to the lead institution with secondary funding arrangements established with the other institution (a 70/30 model is commonly deployed).
