School of Management PhD Scholarships, Royal Holloway, University of London
To apply for any of the below scholarships you need to have received a conditional offer onto our PhD programme and to complete our PhD Scholarship Application Form. The deadline for most of the scholarship applications listed below is 16:00, Tuesday, 2nd February 2016.
If you have applied for the ESRC South East DTC Studentship (see below) you will be automatically considered for School of Management Scholarships and do not need to complete this form if your ESRC application is not successful.
Note that for all the scholarships there are many more applicants than there are available awards and so they are highly competitive. Students should ensure they prepare high quality applications.

The School offers one or two Dean's Scholarships that consist of a maintenance award of £5,000 per annum for up to 3 years (full time) or £2,500 per annum for up to 6 years (part time) and a fee waiver (Home/EU or Overseas), with a requirement to undertake up to 6 hours work for the School per week. The Dean's Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence to new students who will commence a doctoral course full- or part-time during the academic year 2015-16. The deadline for application is 16:00, Tuesday, 2nd February 2016. Please note: students who have already started their PhD programme are not eligible for consideration.
Other support available
The School of Management makes funds available to support research expenses and the costs of attending conferences. Applicants are also encouraged to apply externally for funding.
Information on support if you find yourself in financial difficulty, help searching for external funding, and working part-time may be found here.
If your fees are not paid directly to the university via a third party organisation you are classed as a self-funded student. We accept applications from candidates intending to self-fund their PhD studies.
If you intend to fund yourself during your PhD studies, you should consider creating an accurate three year funding plan considering carefully all your funding sources. These might include, parents, partner, savings, etc. This will allow you to judge the feasibility of your commitments. Full-time PhD students are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week, with a maximum of six hours spent on teaching. In the case of part-time students, there are no limits on working hours, however, students should be aware of the impact of paid work on their studies.
