Projects may come with specific funding (for example, from a research council or Centre for Doctoral Training) to cover your tuition fees and living expenses. 

If a project does not come with specific funding, you may be able to apply for a scholarship. Once you have found a project you want to apply for, find out how to apply.

You can also apply for 3 months additional funding for sustainability-themed PhD projects through the Grantham Centre. More information on applying can be found here.
