Those wishing to propose a CDA project to commence in the 2022/23 academic year can find full details of the scheme below.
[*Please note you should only complete this CDA project proposal application if you are an academic member of staff at one of LAHP’s eight HEIs working in collaboration with a non-HEI partner organisation.
Non-HEI-partner organisations and students wishing to submit a proposal should make contact with academic staff at one of the LAHP HEIs.]
Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the LAHP CDA Award Panel and evaluated against the criteria set out below. The highest ranking proposals will be awarded funding. All studentships will be funded for 3.5 years with the opportunity to apply for a funding extension to 4 years (the stipend for 2021/22 is £17,609). This will depend on the additional skills and training needs identified by the supervisor together with the student and partner during the first year of the project. The awarded candidate will also be entitled to a £550 per annum stipend top-up.
Please submit your CDA Project proposal application via the online portal.
As part of the application you will be required to submit the following:
- Project description of no more than two sides of A4 (excluding references) as highlighted on page 2 of the proposal form.
- Signed letter of support from the non-HEI partner
- (where applicable) the CV of the student nominated in the proposal.
The deadline for proposals from HEI academic staff/non-HEI partners for CDA studentship projects (commencing in the 2022/23 academic year) is Friday 15th October 2021 at 13.00.
You can download the Word version of the application form from this link. We advise you to prepare your answers in a Word document and then cut and paste them onto the online application via the portal. Applications will only be accepted by LAHP if they are submitted via the online portal.
