The scholarship will cover full fees (UK or overseas) as well as provide an annual stipend at the standard UKRI rate (rate for 2023-2024 to be announced, but the equivalent for 2022-2023 was £17,668) for three-and-a-half years.

  • demonstrate an equally high standard of academic performance in a postgraduate master’s degree in a relevant field, or be on course to do so

Informal enquiries about the awards can be made to Professor Frank Cogliano
