I'm currently waiting to see whether I receive funding for a PhD. The studentship comes directly from the university and the department I applied to put my proposal forward as they obviously liked me. The proposal is currently with the studentship committee and the said they would get back to me in early April. Well, this is early April and I can't sleep at the moment through sheer worrying.
Anyone else been in this situation?
Hey! Yes, I bet most of us have been there- I certainly have. It's horrible, and there's not a lot you can do except wait, chase it up eventually, and hope for good news. I just tried to keep myself busy around that time- the places I applied to for funding didn't have a set deadline either, so I was literally just hanging on for months to find out, hoping that one day a letter would drop through my door. In the end it dropped through my parents' door and I had the agonising moment of my dad opening it on the other end of the phone and the silence while he tried to work out exactly what it was saying before he could relate it to me! Try to keep yourself busy and distracted- I think that's the best thing to do at the moment. Fingers crossed for you- let us know when you get the news! Best, KB
