Turing PhD Enrichment Scheme

The Enrichment scheme has been designed to give students undertaking a PhD the opportunity to support and enhance their current research by accessing the facilities and opportunities available at The Alan Turing Institute and its partners.Students usually join us in their second or third years of a typical doctorate to further the work they are undertaking for their research project and support the completion of the PhD.

About the Enrichment Scheme

Applications for the 2023 Enrichment scheme have now closed.

For information on how to prepare a competitive Enrichment application, please view the slides used in the application session from the 25 January 2022.

Online event

Two open events have now taken place and were recorded. You can watch these on the Turing's YouTube channel

Changes for 2023 Enrichment

As the Enrichment scheme enters its 8th year, the Turing announces that for the 2023/24 academic year we will only be offering the following option:

Enrichment Scheme Placement Award

The Placement Award offers candidates the opportunity to undertake a 6 or 9 month placement at the Turing HQ in London. This award carries an expectation that holders will engage in person at the office for a minimum of 2 days per week (subject to the office being open and government health guidelines). 
Up to 55 awards will be offered and will become active in October 2023 or January 2024 at the candidate’s choice. A Placement award of £472.50 per month will be provided to facilitate relocating or commuting to the Turing HQ.

Enrichment Scheme Community Award

For 2023 the Community Award will not be offered as we have for 2022. Following analysis, it has been decided to use the 2022 cohort as a pilot scheme; outcomes and impact will be monitored throughout the 2022/2023 academic year. A decision will be made in summer 2023 about whether the Community Award will be offered again for the 2024 Call.

Further information

You can find futher information about the Enrichment scheme by visiting The Alan Turing Institute.


The Enrichment programme at the Turing has been intellectually refreshing and stimulating. I find the daily interaction with Turing researchers the most valuable experience and I have also greatly benefited from weekly reading groups, seminars, masterclasses and meet-ups.
