Graduate Research Scholarships for Cross-disciplinary Training
Up to four scholarships annually are available to full-time UCL MPhil/PhD and EngD students from any country wishing to spend an additional year of their MPhil/PhD or EngD in another UCL department acquiring research skills and knowledge from a different discipline, which can be applied in their normal area of research. Training should be of one year's duration to permit sustained exposure to the new discipline.
The scholarships can be taken at any point during the MPhil/PhD or EngD programme.
Applicants must be:
- in receipt of an offer of admission to or currently registered at UCL on a full-time MPhil/PhD or EngD research programme, and;
- in receipt of three years funding for their normal MPhil/PhD or EngD programme.
Where the student is in receipt of a scholarship or funding e.g. from a Research Council, written permission for the arrangement must be sought from the relevant body. Self-funding students need to provide evidence that they have full funding for the remaining years of their PhD.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the political impact that the training would have on the scope and impact of the project and the effect on career aspirations of the candidate.
Complete applications must be submitted by 20 January 2016. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered for funding.
Applications should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to:
Student Centre, Chadwick Building
University College London
London WC1E 6BT
**Opening hours are Monday - Friday, 10am - 4pm**
Notification of Results
A selection panel of UCL academics will meet in mid-February and successful candidates can expect to be notified by early March at the latest.
