Funding for Doctoral Training Activities

Funding for conferences

If you are running a conference which is primarily aimed at Doctoral Students, we can provide funds to support the event.

Training Events & Activities

One of the primary aims of the Doctoral Training Partnership is to provide innovative and world-class training and developmental opportunities to our students. Our current offerings include two day sessions on Writing across Boundaries, Participatory Action Research, and Visual Methodologies to name just a few.

We are always interested in expanding our offering to students, and can offer funds to support appropriate research training and development activities.

We would ask that NINE Doctoral Training Students be given preferential access to these courses, but are keen to see the events opened to a wider audience – and, indeed, would be able to promote any training via the wider Doctoral Training Network.

If you are interested in running a training course on research methodologies, or an inter- or multi-disciplinary topic, please contact us – preferably providing a brief outline of the training to be offered, and the intended audience.


The Doctoral Training Partnership can provide funds to support conferences where the topic matter and content are both relevant and accessible to Doctoral Students.

Support can be granted to conferences led by both students and academics.

NINE DTP students would need to be granted preferential access to any DTP funded conference; however, the conference can be opened to a wider audience.

Before funding certain conferences, it may be necessary to gauge student interest in the conference.
