Hi Samreen,

Thanks for getting in touch. This is the first time we've opened up the Scholarship application criteria in this way so I'm afraid I don't have an example to show you.

In terms of using social media you could set up a page on social media and post information about why you should win, get your friends to post on that page with supporting information, upload videos and photos in support of your application too, try and get 'likes' for you winning, or start a twitter feed and see how many followers you can get in support of your application... it's totally up to you!

Our judging panel will take a look at whatever everybody sends (links, a short presentation of what you did, images, whatever you send), and we'll be judging based on creativity and content.

Or you can apply with a 200 word statement, or a video, completely up to you.

I hope that helps and good luck! Sarah.

Thank you for adding the link to LinkedIn - that's great and much appreciated.

In terms of posting letters that would be down the the research agency actually managing the survey - we're just supporting their efforts to contact doctoral graduates from 2003-04 to 2005-06.

Thanks, Sarah.

Doctoral impact and careers tracking study

The UK funding councils and RCUK are carrying out a study of PhD graduates to examine their career pathways, their impact in employment, and how their skills contribute to innovation and growth.

As part of this work, doctoral graduates from 2003-04 to 2005-06 are invited to take part in an impact and careers survey which will be open until 31 May 2013.

The aim is to improve understanding of the impact of doctoral training over the medium to long-term. Questions focus on the importance of research skills and expertise developed during doctoral training in gaining employment; the extent to which the doctoral degree experience enabled graduates to progress towards their long-term career aspirations; the relevance and importance of their doctoral training in contributing to key activities in their roles.

The survey is available now. Thank you.

We know there's huge amount of support available on the Forum, but if you're looking for some general advice if things aren't going as well as you might have hoped, then you might find the latest article on FindAPhD.com useful...

How would you decide?!

Don't forget you can send us your PhD experiences too, then maybe the next Dr. Doodles cartoon will be about you!
