Page 1: LISS DTP CASE studentships - Project Proposal Form

This is the 2023-24 competition, for studentships with a start date of October 2024. 

Please note: this form SHOULD NOT be filled out by prospective students interested in receiving studentship 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 host University and the non-academic partner(s) must be signed before the student commences in October 2024. It is not necessary for the agreement to be in place in order to submit a project proposal.

Academics submitting a proposal may name a prospective student candidate who will be assessed if the project is successfully funded. It is optional to nominate a student and does impact the review process of the application.

All student candidates (nominated or recruited) must be approved by the 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. If you are not nominating a candidate for the studentship, this section of the proposal form can be left blank. 

If you intend to recruit a student to the CASE project, advertising and interviews for the studentship are to be organised between January and March 2024 after successful CASE proposals are announced.

This online project proposal form form must be submitted by  5th November 2023 (23:59 GMT) 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 signed letter of support from your head of department/institute or equivalent, and

3) a CV for your nominated studentship candidate (only if you have a nominated student).

Incomplete project proposals will be rejected.
