Page 1: LISS DTP CASE studentships - Project Proposal Form

Welcome to the LISS DTP CASE project proposal form! This is the 2020-21 competition, for studentships with start dates of October 2021. 

Please note: this form SHOULD NOT be filled out by prospective students interested in funding. This form is for academics working within one of the three LISS DTP institutions- King's College London, Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London- who would like to propose a studentship project involving significant collaboration with a non-academic/non-HEI partner(s). 

A collaboration agreement between the University and the partner(s) must be signed before the student commences in October 2021, but it is not necessary for the agreement to be in place in order to submit an application.

Academics submitting a proposal may name a prospective student candidate who will be assessed if the project is successfully funded. This is optional and not listing a candidate doesn't count against an application. Candidates must be approved by a LISS DTP review panel, which will assess their academic and professional credentials and existing core research methods training to ensure they meet ESRC standards. To be successful, studentship candidates must also be accepted onto a relevant Master's or Doctoral programme for their area of study, chosen by the project academic supervisor. This section of the application form can be left blank if there is no potential candidate for the award; advertising and interviews for the studentship can be organised between January and March 2021 after successful CASE proposals are announced.

This online application form must be submitted by 23:59 GMT, 9th November 2020 together with the following documents which should be emailed to by the same deadline:

1) a signed letter of support on headed paper from your proposed non-HEI partner. 

2) a CV for your proposed studentship candidate (if you have one).

3) a signed letter of support from your head of department/institute or equivalent.
