This scheme enables researchers to undertake humanities or social science doctoral degrees in any area of health.

A Wellcome Trust Doctoral Studentship is usually for three years, although the Trust considers requests to undertake PhDs on a part-time basis.

The support includes a stipend, tuition fees, conference attendance and research expenses.

Students who have already started doctoral studies are not eligible to apply.

Full details are on the Wellcome Trust website.

The application has to be completed in the online Grants Tracker - and is submitted by the university's Research Services Office. It is therefore important that the Law Faculty Research Facilitator is informed of the intention to apply.
