Funding Your Research Degree

Applying for funding will often be an important part of applying for postgraduate study or research.

Many funding sources require a separate application, but for doctoral candidates a number of scholarships can be applied for via the application form for postgraduate admission to the University. The scholarships available via this route are currently the Chancellor’s International Scholarships, CADRE Scholarships and WMS Scholarships. These scholarships are only open for applications during certain periods, so it is advisable to make a combined application for admission and for a scholarship during the open period.

Please note that detailed information on all these awards (and some others not listed here), as well as advice for your application, is available through the Warwick Graduate School website.

Check out our top ten tips for writing your research funding application.
