Award Description

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust was set up in memory of two generations of the Ferguson family, to promote their particular interests in education, international friendship and understanding, and the promotion of world peace and development. The Trust awards grants to postgraduate PhD students, whether from overseas or from the UK, to help meet tuition costs.

Value of Award

A grant to help meet tuition costs. The maximum grant the Trustees will make is £4,000.

Eligibility Criteria

PhD students, whether from overseas or from the UK, may be awarded a grant to help meet tuition costs, but only in respect of the last year of their course. Students must be studying at a university in the UK. Grant cheques will not be paid to the applicant but to the university at which they are studying. The Trust will only provide a one-off grant to postgraduate PhD students therefore if you have received a grant previously you are not eligible to apply again, even if you require funding to help with a different course.

How to Apply

Applications for a PhD grant should be made as soon as possible at least three months before the start of the final year of a PhD course.

Details of the application process and application forms are available through the Trust's website.
