CENTA Science Opportunity Scholarships (CSOS)
We recognise that our PhD cohorts are not as diverse as the talented pool of students that are eligible for our studentships. CENTA has up to 3 fully-funded studentships available to BAME Home-award-eligible applicants who meet the academic requirements. Applications for this scholarship should be made directly to CENTA.
UK and International students are eligible to apply for fully funded NERC CENTA studentships.
- Home (UK) students who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years can apply for full awards covering tuition fees and annual stipend for living costs.
- International students (including EU Students) can apply for jointly funded awards covering tuition fees in full and annual stipend for living costs.
UKRI/NERC funding will provide annual stipend for living costs and tuition fees at the UK rate. The difference between UK tuition fee rate and international tuition fee rate will be covered by University funding.
