Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and potential for independent research, as evidenced by the candidate’s academic record, prior qualifications, proposal and references. Selection will be based on this evidence and upon the strength of the proposed engagement with the advertised research project.
Applicants must hold, or expect to hold prior to commencement of studies, an undergraduate degree at UK first class or 2:1 honours level, or the international equivalent. It is preferable but not a requirement that you hold a Masters relevant to your chosen area of study.
- Before you apply
Before applying, contact a potential supervisor within the field you are interested in (more information about the various sub-disciplines and staff members, along with their areas of speciality, can be found here). This is an opportunity to discuss your research interests, whether the person you contact would be the best supervisory option, and how you intend to frame your research proposal.
- Application process
You must include a detailed research proposal (1000-1500 words) which sets out your anticipated research topic, degree transcripts and certificates, and be supported by two academic references. Further guidance on the research proposal may be found here.
You should mark your application with the name of the scholarship you are applying for in the Intended Source of Funding field.
