Edinburgh Global Research Scholarship 2014-15

Deadline: February 3, 2014

Applications are now open for the 2014-15 Edinburgh Global Research Scholarship, designed to attract high quality overseas research students to the University of Edinburgh. A total of 30 Edinburgh Global Research Scholarships will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic session. Each award covers the difference between the tuition fee for a UK/EU graduate student and that chargeable to an overseas graduate student. The awards do not cover maintenance expenses.
Subject to satisfactory progress, the awards are tenable for up to three years.

Eligibility

  • The awards are open to overseas students undertaking a research degree and may be held in any field of study.
  • Applicants must be liable to pay tuition fees at the rate applicable to overseas students and must have already applied for admission to a full-time PhD research programme of study.
  • Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential.
  • Although candidates with an upper second class honours Bachelor’s degree (or the overseas equivalent) can be considered, in order to be competitive you should really have a first class Bachelor’s degree supplemented by an excellent Master’s degree.
  • Other factors such as financial status, nationality and the proposed field of study are not taken into account.

NOTE: Successful applications will receive their Edinburgh Global Research Scholarship result letter in April 2014.
