The scholarship will be awarded to candidates with research proposals of the highest quality. Scholarships available for UK or international applicants and can be taken full-time or part-time but must start their PhD in September 2023.
In order to receive this scholarship funding, you must have qualifications/experience equal to the standard of a good honours degree at a first or upper second class level from a UK academic research organisation or an equivalent qualification from outside the UK. A combination of qualifications and/or experience that is equivalent to a relevant UK degree may also be accepted.
This scholarship endeavours to support more students from under-represented backgrounds to undertake doctoral degrees and enter academia. Currently, in UK academia, UK Black and other minority ethnic groups are under-represented. Accordingly, when we have applications of equal merit, we will prioritise UK-based candidates of Black and other minority ethnic heritage (to include mixed heritage). This is a positive action measure under s. 158 of the Equality Act 2010.
The scholarship is awarded to all subjects offering PhD Degrees covered within the School of Social Policy, Sociology, and Social Research including;
- Social Policy
- Social Work
- Applied Health Research
- Migration Studies
