SeNSS Policies

We are pleased to announce that the policies listed below have been adopted by SeNSS, in relation to funding opportunities for all SeNSS ESRC-funded students. 

The following documents are the student-friendly versions of these policies, whilst the second batch of documents (numbers 5-7 below) are the official policies, which include additional information about eligibility, and processes for applying and approving applications for this funding.

1) the SeNSS Research and Training Support Grant (RTSG) policy, which sets out when and how your students can apply for funding to cover expenses which are deemed to be in direct support of their research.

2) the SeNSS Overseas Fieldwork (OFW) policy, which sets out when and how your students can apply for funding for undertaking overseas fieldwork which is critical to their research projects. The application form for OFW funding is available here.

3) The SeNSS Difficult Language Training (DLT) policy, which sets out when and how your students can apply for funding for undertaking language training which is critical to their research projects. The application form for a DLT extension to their awards is available here.

Please note that students are advised that they must read these policy documents thoroughly AND that they must discuss their plans with you, their supervisor, BEFORE incurring any costs or making any training, fieldwork or language training plans, as it is essential that they have your support for their applications. Without your support, their applications will not be considered for funding.

The following documents are, as noted, the official versions of these policies, which include additional information you might find useful to know.
