MRC industrial Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering (iCASE) studentship scheme from 2017

Driving innovation and collaborating with industry remains at the heart of MRC strategy and delivery plans.
Our industrial CASE (iCASE) PhD studentship scheme has for many years played a key role in this by helping develop partnerships and enabling students to benefit from a broad and unique training experience.
Given this previous success and the enormous potential that industry-academic collaboration has to offer for UK society and the economy, we wish to enhance the flexibility of the MRC iCASE studentship scheme.

New approach
From 2017 we are introducing a different approach to iCASE studentship support. Instead of the previous system, where investigators submitted individual iCASE studentship project and training proposals directly to an MRC annual competition and then recruited to this one position, we will instead allocate studentships directly to research organisations (ROs) for two intake years.

More detailed guidance will be issued in April. For queries relating to the requirements of the competition please email:
