Funding yourself during your PhD

 

Sometimes you need funding in addition to pay from a part time job. This is competitive and time consuming but some key funding resources to try are:

  • Postgraduate study - funding in the UK
    Sources of funding for postgraduate study in the UK listed on the LSE Careers website.
  • The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding
    LSE Careers has a subscription to this database. It includes good advice on putting together funding applications to charities and a database of unusual pots of funding that postgraduate students may be eligible for.
  • Research Professional
    LSE has a subscription to this funding database and so you will be able to create an account from an LSE computer and then access it off-site using your account. It includes funding at all levels including conference funding, travel funds, early-career research fellowships etc.
