Action on Hearing Loss PhD studentship scheme aims to encourage the best students to become involved in hearing, deafness and tinnitus research in the UK.
The projects should bring tangible benefits closer for people who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have tinnitus.
Summary of grant
- Deadline: Monday 17 September 2012. This grant round is for PhD Studentships starting in Autumn 2013.
- Duration: Three years
- Eligibility: Students and supervisors must be based at a recognised UK university or research institute
Guidelines and application form – applications must be submitted by the proposed supervisor:
All proposals are sent to two/three external referees, usually within the UK, who are asked to judge the scientific merit of the project as well as the suitability of the project for a PhD student. These reviews and the original proposals are then rated by our PhD review panel. The top-rated proposals are then funded – they expect to award at least four new PhD studentships per year.
Applicants are notified of the outcome as soon as possible. AHL aim to decide on the successful projects before Christmas each year to allow successful applicants plenty of time to recruit a suitable student.
