BBSRC DTP Industrial CASE Studentship Application Procedure


From October 2016 entry onwards, has been a change in the application procedure for BBSRC CASE Studentships.  These will now be managed directly by the Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and not by the BBSRC.

The White Rose DTP in Mechanistic Biology has been allocated nine collaborative studentships per year.  These will be allocated to the universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.


These CASE awards will be allocated along very similar lines to the existing BBSRC CASE competition. Click on the links below to download the guidance notes and BBSRC FAQs:
