Teacher training scholarships, PhD studentships and Post-Doctoral fellowships – ‘ships everywhere!
It’s been a while since we had a grab-the-cash round up, don’t you think? More politely referred to as ‘A summary of scholarships and bursaries’, but in these days of Government-by-Tweet is decorum even a thing? Ugh. Anyway. Onward and rise above…
Next round of applications closes 8 February! Are you considering applying for a PhD? The university’s Doctoral College is offering a range of fully-funded PhD studentship projects for 2017 entry. Most of the studentships available are worth more than £60,000 over three years. Some are funded by the university and others are externally funded through research partnerships with, for example, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The deadline for applications for many of these schemes are on Wednesday 8 February. However, there will be other opportunities for studentships s throughout the year. More details of all these funding opportunities are available on the university website.
Applications close 7 March. JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship (Long Term).
