Kate Gear

Studentships and DTP Manager

  • I am responsible for the management and administration of the Social Sciences Division's graduate studentships. This includes overseeing the annual scholarships awarding process for University funding schemes such as the Clarendon and Vice-Chancellor’s Funds, and day-to-day management of Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) doctoral training grants held at Oxford.
  • I am also responsible for the operation of the ESRC-funded Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership (GUDTP), held collaboratively by Oxford, the Open University and Brunel University London. The DTP provides funding for postgraduate studentships and a small number of postdoctoral fellowships.
  • My office is the first point of contact for all ESRC-funded students at Oxford.
