STEAM Scholarships

student looking into microscopeApplications are open for STEAM scholarships to start in February 2018.

STEAM Scholarships are fully funded PhD scholarships across subjects in the Physical, Social and Life Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Humanities, and Mathematics. This investment is an integral part of our research vision.

The closing date for applications is 23.59 on 13 October 2017.

The majority of the scholarships will be funded using our “PhD Classic” funding model, which provides a tax-free doctoral stipend at RCUK rates (£14,553 for 2017-18) for three years and a Home fees waiver (£4,195 for 2017-18) for three years.However, some of the scholarships on offer in Health and Education will be funded under our Graduate Research and Teaching Assistant (GRTA) model, which combines a 75 per cent tax-free doctoral stipend with 25 per cent employment as an assistant lecturer.
