PhD Grant

The CIOT wishes to continue supporting PhDs, but unfortunately there is limited funding available for 2021.  Any application will be judged on its merits, but wherever possible please consider limiting the amount of the funding request to a modest sum so that funding can be spread across as many applicants as possible.

Download the form below to make an application for a PhD grant.

There are two application closing dates each year: 1 April and 1 November.

Grants will not be given to students until they have completed their first year.

Students must be undertaking either full-time or part-time research towards a PhD in taxation at a UK university although students who are registered for an M.Phil. and who intend to upgrade to a PhD before submission may apply.

This grant must not be used to meet college fees and please note that no living expenses will be approved for payment as part of any grant request.

Preference will be given to those students who intend to remain in the UK to pursue an academic career.
