St Leonard's College Interdisciplinary Doctoral Scholarships

The St Leonard's College Interdisciplinary Doctoral Scholarships are intended to promote interdisciplinary doctoral research and support cross-Faculty and cross-School collaborations. Up to 12 scholarships will be awarded for new doctoral students commencing their degree in the 2019-20 academic year.
Research projects must be interdisciplinary in nature with the doctoral student jointly supervised by two Schools. Preference will be given to applications that support (i) new cross-Faculty connections; or (ii) new connections in an area of strategic importance:

* cultural understanding
* environmental sustainability
* health, infectious disease, and wellbeing
* materials for the modern world
* peace, conflict, and security

How to Apply

Applications should be submitted by the proposed supervisors - direct applications from prospective doctoral students will not be accepted.

Further enquiries regarding the scholarships may be addressed to Brett Dodgson at St Leonard's College - please email stlc@st-andrews.ac.uk

Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships

The scholarships are open to UK/EU and international applicants. Please note that the academic requirements are higher than normally needed for admission to doctoral programmes – applicants must hold a UK first class honours degree (or an equivalent international qualification) as well as a Masters degree in a field of study relevant to their proposed doctoral research. Applicants who have not at the date of application completed their Masters degree should be able to show evidence that they are on course to do before the start of the doctoral degree. Applicants must meet the standard English language entry requirements.

Applicants must be able to start their doctoral degree in September 2019. Awards cannot be deferred to a later starting date.

Scholarships are available in three disciplinary areas – broadly defined – that align with the Foundation’s interests: history, literature, and languages. It is expected that one studentship will be awarded in each of these three areas.

The application period is now open and will close 30 January 2019.
