The quarterly round applies to candidates who will be submitting their thesis between 1 October - 31 December 2018.
The PPA scheme is designed to encourage graduate research students to disseminate their research findings through publication in professional journals or books. The scheme provides an income equivalent to the APA rate for two months and is aimed at supporting students who, having submitted their thesis, wish to write up some of their research for publications whilst they await the results of their examination.
Full details (guidelines and application form) are available on the MGRO website
Please note that preference is given to students who submit their thesis within three and a half years (42 months, effective full time) of commencing a doctorate or two years (24 months, effective full time) of commencing a master's. Where this time limit is exceeded, the supervisor must make a case within the application as to why this overrun has occurred, even if by a few days.
Applications must be submitted via email to the Faculty Graduate Research Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org
By closing date of 1 October 2018.
