Social Care PhD Studentship Scheme open to applications

Health and Care Research Wales is pleased to announce that the 2021 round of the Social Care PhD Studentship Scheme is now open.

These awards fund talented individuals to undertake research and study leading to a PhD and support capacity building in social care research in Wales.

Applications must come from the proposed supervisor, who is defined as the applicant to this scheme. There is no need for a student to have been identified at the application stage.

PhD projects funded through these awards should provide robust evidence that addresses the social care needs of service users, carers and the wider population, and/or the organisation and delivery of efficient and effective social care services in Wales.

While applications will be welcome from across the social care research spectrum, for the 2021 call, Health and Care Research Wales will particularly welcome applications addressing research questions concerned with equality, diversity and inclusion. Applications must also conform to the guidelines set out in the Health and Care Research Wales document What is social care research?

Application deadline: 12:00 on Friday 5 March 2021
