UK : Principal's Career Development PhD Scholarships


The University of Edinburgh will offer almost 60 PhD scholarships for students starting their PhD research at the University in the 2010-2011 academic session. The awards are open to UK, EU and overseas students undertaking a research degree and may be held in any field of study. In order to attract the best and brightest PhD students, the University of Edinburgh seeks to offer not only unparalleled research facilities and superb supervision, but also to provide development opportunities which will support our research students as they progress beyond their PhD, through an innovative programme of integrated research, training and career development. This exciting new scholarship scheme provides a valuable opportunity for postgraduate research students to undertake a package of training and development which will help them to develop the necessary skills required to meet their career choices, and offer them a breadth of development opportunities in areas such as teaching, public engagement, entrepreneurship, and research.


Applicants must have already applied for admission to a full-time PhD research programme of study at the University of Edinburgh. They must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level or the international equivalent. Other factors such as financial status, nationality and the proposed field of study are not taken into account. The University of Edinburgh will not generally consider candidates who have already obtained a PhD, or formal equivalent, as a result of direct research training.Candidates are required to have good English Language skills with scholarship applicants normally requiring a minimum IELTS of 7.0.

Please also note that if you have applied for consecutive registration where you will start your Master's programme of study in 2010 and your PhD the following year in 2011, that you will not be eligible to apply for a Principal's Career Development Scholarship in 2010. Principal's awards cannot be held concurrently with fully-funded scholarships but can be held with partial awards such as Scottish Overseas Research Students Award Scheme (SORSAS) awards.
