    Hello, I was wondering if anyone had heard back about AHRC/Durham Doctoral Scholarships yet? It said on the website we would know either way by 8th of April and that's been and gone. My stepsister heard about MA funding at Durham a few weeks ago, so was just wondering if any PhD funding news had started to come out. Or has anyone heard any news about revised announcement dates from the department?

    I'm waiting, as well.

    I got MA funding last year, and I had given up hope long before I found out I'd gotten a scholarship in late summer. A friend of mine who began her PhD this year and won a DDS learned she had won hers about a month after the deadline cited on the website.

    So, in short, the deadlines online aren't solidly adhered to from my experience. If you haven't heard, it's probably a good sign and you were short-listed. Just wait it out, I suppose! Good luck!

    One possible scenario that can lead to a late doctoral fellowship (DDF) award, I believe, is one where an applicant applies for a DDF as well as research council funding. They get the DDF but then subsequently get the research council studentship. That releases the DDF to be awarded to someone from the original shortlist but that award can then happen quite late, depending on when research council decisions are made. I'm not sure that helps anyone currently waiting to hear but it isn't necessarily tardiness from the University that could lead to a late award.
