    Hi guys. Amid the funding frenzy, a question popped up in my mind. I was nominated for ESRC award distributed by the SGSSS doctoral training centre and I was recently told that my application made it to the second/last round.

    The internet page of Edinburgh Uni says that SGSSS offers 65 fully-funded scholarships across all disciplines - for my, sociology, it is 3. Given that every of the 4 universities nominates 5-6 applicants, there are approx. 24 applicants competing for 3 fully-funded places (I don't know how many were ruled out in the first inter-pathway round).

    However, I am not eligible for the fully-funded award, as I have EU residential status. My question is - do the ESRC centres offer partial studentships (worth approx 1/4 of full award) on top of those full or they just offer 3 (in my case) and that's it - full or not.

    Thanks!

    What is EU residential status and are you suggesting that this is a lesser status than being resident in the UK? If so, do you have a link to where the ESRC make this distinction?

    "Fees only studentships are available for all of the above types of studentships when EU students have not been primarily resident in the UK for the past three years."

    It's not a "lesser" status, you just can't have the full award, if I understand correctly.
