Applications for research funding from the Richard Benjamin Trust are open

Applications are invited from potential students for a funding award contributing towards a collaborative PhD or D.Prof (full-time or part-time study; by thesis or by publications) in the area of social and/or organisational psychology. The topic of the PhD/DProf must have the demonstrable potential to make a positive difference to families, organisations or communities and to people’s lives.

A single, one-off award of £35,000 will be made to the university where the successful applicant will be based. The award can be used to contribute towards fees, living costs, and/or research costs. Applicants must indicate how the rest of their costs are to be met and provide evidence of financial support (e.g., from the university) if it is required.

Applications must include evidence of collaboration from i) a university of the student’s choosing, ii) a specified academic supervisor, and iii) an external third partner, such as a voluntary or work organisation, in which impact could occur.
