Hi, it's through uni. It's a fee waiver and 3k maintenance grant. Yes I will speak to SF also. I will apply to the N Lottery in Oct also once they open applications again. Thanks again.

Hi, thanks for your advice.
My proposal is looking at language variation across Hx and Hudds as I live in Huddersfield. I did contemplate Sheffield but I expect they would want me to gather data from their local areas.
I have kids and one with SEN so I need to be as near as I can get to home really.
Thanks for the link. I may postpone my studies until I can find the time to do some intense research around funding. Thanks again to you all.

Hi Thanks for your reply - much appreciated. I am an English teacher so I do part-time tutoring (don't work at a school anymore thankfully) but the hours are not guaranteed - plus I have to spend time planning for each student.
If anyone could advise me on where to get some decent charity grants for dialectal research then that would help. Thanks again. I have a lot of thinking to do.

Hi, Thanks for this. I'm 44 with kids etc so a mature student lol with own home etc. I think I'll have to accept their offer and apply for loads of grants etc which is going to be a lot of extra work as I'm finishing my MA dissertation at the mo. I may postpone my start date them as you suggest. Thanks for your time. Ps. The loan is not given if you get other financial awards so I can't combine unfortunately.

Hi all,
Please can you advise?
I've been offered the above but I can't live on this amount - even though I'm grateful to be recognised.
I'm panicking that unless I can obtain further funding then I won't be able to continue with my Phd studies in Linguistics.
Has anyone got any advice as to the best places to source etc funding as I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed and stressed at the mo. Thanks in advance.
