About the Scholarship
The Faculty of Science is pleased to offer University of Bristol Postgraduate Research Scholarships to UK, EU and international applicants showing exceptional research potential.
These PhD Scholarships include full tuition fees, full stipend at the UK Research Council rate (£14,296 in 2016/17) and, in conjunction with the host School, a contribution to research costs at the UK Research Council level appropriate to the discipline.
The term of funding is 3, 3.5 or 4 years, according to the particular discipline and training programme, and is subject to satisfactory progress.
UK, EU and international scholarships are awarded by schools in the Faculty of Science. Interested applicants should contact the school appropriate to their discipline for information concerning application deadlines and, in some cases, designated eligible research areas. Application deadlines are different between schools, and may be as early as 31 December 2016. It is therefore essential that you contact the relevant schools.
Applicants who wish to be considered for a scholarship should submit their postgraduate online application by the appropriate deadline to ensure they receive full consideration. You should tick the appropriate box in the ‘funding’ section of the online application form; there is also a free text box where you can enter additional information if required.
