What happens next?

Your application will be assessed firstly at institutional level and, if successful, will be put forward to a CHASE selection panel.

You will be notified at each stage whether your application has been successful. Applicants put forward to a CHASE selection panel will be informed of the outcome in April 2020.

What happens if I am offered a CHASE studentship?

Following the CHASE selection panel, if you are notified of a successful application you will receive a formal offer letter and the chance to accept/decline as you wish.

What happens if I do not receive an offer from CHASE?  Can I apply again?

Yes, the next round of funding will begin in October 2020 and, so long as you still meet the eligibility requirements, you may still apply.
