Scenario Project-Based Applications

Scenario is advertising 48 projects for Autumn 2024 entry, Cohort 11. The projects are listed on our webpage Projects for 2024 Entry.

Scenario Project-Led Studentships

The studentships are initially offered for 3 years. If at the start of the studentship a gap in knowledge or training is identified for the specific project, the studentship can be extended to 3.5 years at that point.  Towards the end of the PhD, there is the opportunity to apply for an extension, based on set criteria. The maximum duration of funding is 4 years.

Some projects have fixed term funding. This is indicated in the project description.


Some projects have CASE support. This means that an external partner (industry, business, public section or ‘third’ sector) is involved in the project and will provide training, access to facilities, a placement opportunity and additional funds to supplement the Research Training and Support Grant.  You can find out more details on the NERC CASE Studentships webpage.

Please see our webpage Apply for a Scenario PhD for details how to apply.
