Institute for Sustainability


Sustainability Studentships

Thanks to the support of the University’s Endowments Group, we have successfully secured funding for a rolling programme of PhD studentships closely aligned with our core strategy.

Building upon its success in connecting Newcastle University’s research with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Institute for Sustainability is increasing its focus on supporting research to influence policy and practice to deliver the Goals.

Thanks to the support of the University’s Endowments Group, the Institute has funding for a cohort of four PhD studentships at Newcastle University. For the 2018/2019 intake, the Institute will support four outstanding graduates wishing to undertake a PhD programme in research to policy and practice related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The studentships are tenable for three years in any NU Faculty, cover Band 2 tuition fees and a stipend.

More information on the 2018/2019 cohort of PhD studentships will be available in early November 2017.

All future calls will be advertised on this page. To be notified when future calls open, please register your interest.
