Queen Mary University of London Intellectual Property PhD - Herchel Smith Scholarships
New PhD students undertaking full-time research in the area of Intellectual Property (IP) can apply for a Herchel Smith Scholarship to start in the 2016-17 academic year. The award covers three years of study while in full time enrolment, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports.
The award will cover all tuition fees whether at the Home/EU rate or the overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and non-EU applicants. In addition, an award of around £15,000 per year (reviewed annually) will be paid to the recipient on a monthly basis throughout the calendar year starting from September 2016.
What are Scholarship holders required to do?
Successful recipients of this award are not required to undertake any teaching or research assistant duties, but they are expected to participate in the Intellectual Property community at Queen Mary University of London.
Notifying the School of Law of your application for Herchel Smith funding
There is a section within the PhD online application form labelled ‘Funding’. To notify us that you wish to apply for our Studentship award you will need to respond to the question: ‘How do you intend to finance your studies at Queen Mary?’ by stating ‘I am a School of Law Herchel Smith award applicant’. Then in response to the next question: ‘Please give details of any scholarships or grants you are applying for or have already secured’, you should specifically state that you wish to apply for a School of Law Herchel Smith award.
Without this notification, you will not be considered as a funding applicant. You will be treated as an applicant to our PhD programme only.
If you want to apply for Herchel Smith funding and have already submitted your main application (without indicating that you wish to be considered for one of our funding awards) you must contact Mr Gareth Skehan, PhD Admissions Administrator, before the deadline by email on email@example.com, and state the award that you want to apply for. Without this specific email notification you will not be considered for Herchel Smith funding.
Only applicants who have completed the online application process to the PhD programme prior to the funding submission deadline will be considered for funding. For information on how to make an application, what our entry requirements are, and what supporting documentation is required, please see our web-page.
If you have any queries relating to the PhD funding application process, please email the School of Law PhD Admissions Administrator, Mr G Skehan by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
