Our PhD studentship scheme aims to encourage the best students to become involved in hearing, deafness and tinnitus research in the UK.

The projects should bring tangible benefits closer for deaf people and those who have hearing loss or tinnitus.

One of the awards for the scheme, in the area of tinnitus research, will be jointly funded with the British Tinnitus Association. We also encourage applications for co-funded PhD studentships. This may be with the host institute or an external partner (for example, another funding body, charity or company).
