Warwick invests an additional £700,000 in Chancellor’s Scholarships for PhD students


The University of Warwick has invested an additional £700,000 in its highly sought after Chancellor’s Scholarships for postgraduate research students and increased the duration of the scholarships to 3.5 years. The deadline for applications is 11th January 2013. And details on how to apply can be found here:

Professor Jacqueline Labbe Chair of the University of Warwick’s Board of Graduate Studies said:

“Warwick is one of the UK’s top ten research intensive universities and almost 45% of our students are postgraduates. Warwick has sought to build further on that success and Since 2006/7has adopted a goal of doubling its postgraduate research population by 2015/16.”

“We are well on track to achieve this goal - since 2006/07 the postgraduate research student population at Warwick has increased from 1102 to 1796 (2011/12 entry), representing a percentage increase of 62.98% “

"We also recognise that the best students deserve the best level of support we can devise, and I am very pleased that from 2013 students to whom we award University funding will be supported for 3.5 years rather than the sector standard of 3 years."
