Studentships and fellowships
When there are no funded positions advertised, there are still a range of funding opportunities for studentships and fellowships.
For students, there are scholarship and funding opportunities for students (e.g. Chancellor’s International Scholarship) to study for a doctoral degree at the University of Warwick. Citizens of other Commonwealth countries may consider Commonwealth Scholarships. You plan to apply for a scholarship from other sources, such as your home Government (e.g. CSC), may also be supported.
For early-career researchers, the University’s Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) provides different fellowship schemes. Researchers currently outside the UK may consider the EC’s Marie Curie Individual Fellowships and The Royal Society’s fellowships and grants under the Newton Fund. Besides, there is a wide range of other fellowship schemes in the UK for early-career researchers, such as UKRI Future Leaders Fellowships, EPSRC Fellowships, Ernest Rutherford Fellowship, Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship, Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellowships, among others.
Visiting students and scholars are welcome to our group to exchange knowledge, conduct research, and establish collaborations. The University’s Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) has funding schemes for visiting scholars. Overseas visitors may also consider The Royal Society’s International Exchanges and Wolfson Visiting Fellowship, The Leverhulme Trust’s International Fellowships and Visiting Professorships. You plan to apply for a scholarship from other sources, such as your home Government (e.g. CSC), may also be supported.
