The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council has just announced its 2009 Industrial CASE Award scheme.

Industrial CASE provides funding for PhD studentships where businesses take the lead in arranging projects with an academic partner of their choice. Funding for at least 40 3.5-year PhD studentships is available. Studentships (current value per student of £65,294) will be awarded to companies with the EPSRC funding provided to the host university through Industrial CASE Accounts. More information and application forms are available from the EPSRC website, linked below.
