The Centre is pleased to participate in a new ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership at the University of Cambridge.  A range of studentships are available across the social sciences at Cambridge; if you are interested in how society works and how it can handle global challenges, a DTP studentship will give you a world-class training programme, with access to leading international scholars both at Cambridge and other DTPs, and a wide community of fellow social scientists.

You can find out more about ESRC DTP studentships here:  https://www.esrcdtp.group.cam.ac.uk/about and visit https://www.esrcdtp.group.cam.ac.uk/prospectivestudents and contact Élise Lapaire for further specifics.

Please do bear in mind that, should you be successful, this grant will require strict termly progress throughout the PhD programme, in order to demonstrate the student's continued eligibility to the funds.

Yousef Jameel Scholarship

This scholarship is offered by Cambridge Trusts for those researching in Sustainable Organic Desert Agriculture. Further information and how to apply can be found here.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan

Congratulations to PhD student Nungari Mwangi who was awarded the 2016 Andrew E Rice Award from the Society for International development!
