University College London (UCL) Graduate Research Scholarships 2014

Deadline: January 17, 2014

Applications are now open for the University College London (UCL) Graduate Research Scholarships. The scholarships aim to attract high-quality students to undertake research at UCL. Up to 17 UCL Graduate Research Scholarships (GRS) are available annually to prospective and current UCL research students from any country.

Value: Benefits and Duration

The scholarships consist of fees equivalent to the standard postgraduate UK/EU rate (2013/14: £4,400) plus a maintenance stipend (2013/14: £15,726) for full-time study (benefits are calculated ‘pro rata’ for part-time students). The scholarship also includes additional research costs at a level up to £1,000 per year for the stated duration of the programme.

Awards are normally tenable for years 1, 2, and 3 of a full-time research degree programme (or years 1-5 of a part-time programme), subject to annual review and renewal.

Where students are undertaking integrated four-year doctoral programmes the award will be extended to the final year of study.

If granted, funding begins at the start of the next academic session.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be:

  • in receipt of an offer of admission to (please see IMPORTANT NOTE below) or currently registered at UCL on a full- or part-time research degree programme, and;
  • holding or expecting to achieve at least an upper second-class Honours UK undergraduate degree or equivalent qualification.

While current students may apply, those entering their third year of research will normally only be considered for funding in exceptional circumstances.

Selection Criteria

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and research potential. Financial circumstances are not taken into account.
