This award is open to the most outstanding students who have made an application for admission to study for a full-time PhD in the Departments of Chemistry, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics at Imperial College. This scholarship is only open to new students, and not to students already registered for a PhD at the College.
Value of Award
This award offers a contribution of £75,000 (from 2020-21 entry) towards maintenance and fees over the course of the studentship. The award is tenable for a maximum of three and a half years.
How to apply
Prospective PhD students should submit a PhD application through the normal Imperial College online application process. Departments will then consider applicants for the scholarship. Prospective students cannot apply direct for the scholarship.
Those who have been nominated for this award will be assessed by their prospective departments, who will make the final selection. These scholarships will be awarded to those students who have been ranked the highest based on academic merit and potential. Students’ admission application forms and references provided will be used to assess this.
Outcome of awards
Students will be advised of the outcome of their application by their department.
