The Warwick Prize Scholarships & Fellowships in astrophysics

We are excited to announce the Warwick prize scholarships and fellowships in astrophysics. Made possible thanks to a generous philanthropic donation from a Warwick alumnus, these awards enable us to support a pipeline of talent from postgraduate study up to early career researchers.

The scheme has two components, scholarships that fully fund a 4 year PhD degree and post-doctoral fellowships aimed at early-career researchers.

The first cohort of prize winners is expected to start in October '22, with the scheme looking to support several scholarships and fellowships each year.

Post-graduate Prize Scholarships

We expect to be recruiting around 3 scholars in our first round. These scholarships cover all fees and offer 4 years of stipend as well as access to research funds to cover travel, laptop and consumables. The scholarships are available to both national and international candidates.

Information regarding how to apply for PhD positions with us can be found on our top-level page, and the same application process is required regardless of funding source. We are looking for excellent scholars that are keen to work with us on a variety of research areas and projects. You can find out more about the research we do here, and representative PhD projects can be found here. If you have questions regarding specific projects, please contact the lead academics associated with them.

Post-doctoral Prize Fellowships

The fellowships are aimed at researchers that have recently, or are about to, obtained their PhD. We plan to award 2-3 fellowships each year for an initial duration of 3 years. For those who have demonstrated their excellence during their initial term, we plan to offer the possibility to apply for a further 2 years of funding. Details regarding the eligibility criteria, application process and deadlines will be posted here soon. You are expected to demonstrate your ambitions via a research proposal.


More details on the scheme will follow soon. To get in touch with us or register your interest in the prize scholarships and fellowships, please use this contact form.
