Elite Doctoral Researcher Scholarships 2013 - 2014

Posted on Monday 12th November 2012

The University Graduate School is pleased to announce that it has ten Doctoral Elite Researcher Scholarships which will commence in the 2013-2014 academic year.

The Scholarships are available to outstanding overseas candidates of the highest academic aptitude holding an offer of a place to study for a PhD at the University of Birmingham starting in October 2013. Candidates from all Colleges are eligible to be considered for these awards.

A successful applicant will typically be top of their cohort of undergraduate students. The applicant’s profile of marks will be exemplary (equivalent to high first class with no marks in the IIi equivalent category or below). The quality of the institution should be judged by world university rankings. Applicants could already have research published in international journals as a result of Masters level research for instance. Their references will attest to qualities of academic achievement or research potential that make the candidates stand out above their peers. They may have won prizes within their institution, or even international prizes.

The Scholarship is conditional on nominated candidates achieving a first class mark (or equivalent) in their final examinations before beginning their PhD at the University of Birmingham.

Anyone interested should submit their PhD application to their departmental Doctoral Researcher leads by 03 December 2012.
