Warwick Postgraduate Research Scholarships
The Warwick Graduate School is offering 30 to 40 prestigious studentship awards for outstanding students who wish to pursue a course of study at doctoral level.
You are eligible to apply for the Scheme if :
You are applying to study or are currently studying for a three-year full-time PhD or MPhil / PhD (in the case of the Faculties of Arts, Medicine and Social Sciences), at the University of Warwick.
Students who are currently studying can only apply in the first year of their registration.
You have obtained or are expected to obtain at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) from a recognised institution of higher education before 31 July 2010.
Competition for the awards is extremely intense.
Previously, most awards have gone to applicants with a first class degree or distinction at Masters level (or the equivalent from overseas).
Applications are also welcome from people who may not have a first class degree but can demonstrate potential through significant relevant professional experience as well as their academic achievements.
Selection criteria and process
Competition for the awards is very high and awards will only be made to candidates who are able to demonstrate academic excellence and the potential to be an outstanding researcher. There is no age limit for applicants.
Departments are asked to nominate applicants and provide statements of support.
Please note that you are not required to submit the statement of
support from the academic department with your application – the Graduate School Office will request it from your department if you are nominated.
The nominated applications are normally graded by a sub-committee of the Board of Graduate Studies. Each of the four faculties at Warwick is normally represented on the Selection Committee.
Application deadline : Last year there were two separate rounds of the competition. The first round of the competition opened on 1 November and closed on 30th November.
The second round of applications opened on 1 February and closed on 28 February. Applicants were only entitled to apply for one round of the competition, and awards available were distributed evenly across both rounds.
