ESRC management board


Hi all, I've been informed that my PhD proposal for an ESRC DTP has been nominated for an award by the DTP Panel and will now be put forward to the final stage which is the Management Board. They've told me I'm ranked 3rd out of 4 awards nominated in my pathway, all of which can be awarded. Does anyone have experience of being in this position? and what it means for my chances of being awarded?? I'm very nervous as there is conflicting information about whether the Board just ratify these decisions or whether they will be assessing all the shortlisted proposals?

You effectively have it. The management board will look over it and rubber stamp it unless they see something seriously wrong with the review process.


Hi Sicily, could you tell me how you got on? I'm in a similar position.The waiting is driving me mad.
