In an effort to tackle systemic barriers experienced by students in progressing to postgraduate research degree programmes, a goal of the doctoral training partnership is to widen participation and cultivate a supportive, inclusive, and diverse community of future scientific leaders.
This includes a ring-fenced scheme for UK students from ethnic minority backgrounds.
The deadline application is 23:59 (GMT) on Wednesday 26 January 2022.
