Extension of PhD funding

Extenuating circumstances

Students are typically awarded a stipend for 3.5 years in the first instance. They will be given an opportunity to apply for stipend extension in case
severe unforeseen circumstances have disrupted their research work or their ability to work. These cases will be evaluated on an individual basis by the ACCE Management board.

Students will need to apply for an extension by sending a formal letter to the ACCE Management board at acce.dtp@sheffield.ac.uk explaining the situation. The letter should specify if there is any chance of data recovery and what length of the extension will help with the data collection and remediation.
