    Hey y'all,

    Anybody heard anything back from the ESRC Open Competition (either 1+3 or +3)? I know the website says that universities and their nominated contact will hear in July 2009... just wondered if anybody had any news or any inside gossip?

    Thats all.

    I think based on past years applicants normally find out in early August

    Yup, I'm in the odd position of already holding a scholarship at one university, but waiting on both quota plus open competition at another (I was originally named as one of three backups for the first three quota places, nominated into the open comp instead, then one of the three quotas dropped out because Wellcome Trust funding is worth more), so I had to phone them and ask about the process. They told me if I was to get the quota place I was now in for again, I would withdraw from the open competition, but as long as the university decided by the end of July there'd be no problems or clash. Therefore, I'm inclined to agree with Ilex and say early August.

    All of that, and I'm (probably) not going to take either offer anyway...
