The United Kingdom's Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) has revealed that it may fund 1000 fewer new Ph.D.s in the upcoming academic year than in 2010-11. The research council disclosed this estimate, in which the number of newly started doctorates would fall to 1900 in 2011-12, in a recently published answer to a question from Member of Parliament Gareth Thomas. Although an EPSRC official tells ScienceInsider that these forecast figures are a "worst-case scenario," the council does still anticipate significant cuts.
