PhD scholarship scheme – call for applications

20:00 EDT 20 Jun 2017 | Arthritis Research UK

Applications are now open for our PhD scholarship scheme with a deadline of 16:00 on Wednesday 20 September.

A limited number of our prestigious PhD scholarships are available to encourage the best graduates to embark on a research career in any discipline relevant to arthritis and related musculoskeletal diseases.

These awards offer up to 4 years funding to successful applicants, which includes a generous tax-free incremental stipend, UK tuition fees and enhanced running costs.

Scholarships are awarded annually, by open competition, for projects that have clear relevance to our aims, and provide training in research in a multidisciplinary environment. Applications should be made by the proposed supervisor at an eligible institute. We encourage the inclusion of a named student on the proposal, although applications will be accepted with projects alone, with student recruitment to be carried out at a later date.

Proposals may also be submitted for collaborative studentships by institutions with an industrial sponsor/supervisor.

Scholarships will be awarded by open competition for PhDs starting in autumn 2018. Due to funding regulations applicants must be based in the UK.

Applications should be made through our online grant management system Grant Tracker.
