University of Leeds International PhD Scholarships

If you are a non-UK student interested in doing a PhD in perception and action, please feel free to contact me. The deadline is 4 July 2012.

**************
The University has launched a new scholarship for international PhD students. The scholarship will provide full international fees and a maintenance grant of £10,000 pa for three years. There will be up to 9 awards across the university and the deadline for applicants is 4 July 2012. Applicants must normally hold a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK First Class Honours degree[1] and should be considered to be amongst the ‘best of the best’ (eg successful applicants are likely to be in the top 5% of their MSc/MA and BSc/BA cohorts and already in receipt of prizes and published papers at national or international level).  Applicants should either have graduated with the appropriate First Degree or be in their final year of study.

Applicants who have previously applied for a FIRS scholarship for Session 2012/13 (including those on the reserve list) are eligible to apply for LIRS in Session 2012/13 (provided they meet all other eligibility criteria).
  • Applicants MUST first submit a research degree study application form and be in receipt of a University BANNER ID Number to be eligible for a Leeds International Research Scholarship.  Applications without a valid University ID Number will be rejected.  To apply for a place on a research degree programme, please visit: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/students/apply_research.htm
  • These awards are only available to applicants who would be liable to pay academic fees at the full international fee rate;
  • Applicants must normally hold a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK First Class Honours degree  and should be considered to be amongst the ‘best of the best’ (eg successful applicants are likely to be in the top 5% of their MSc/MA and BSc/BA cohorts and already in receipt of prizes and published papers at national or international level).  Applicants should either have graduated with the appropriate First Degree or be in their final year of study; 
  • Applicants whose first language is not English must have already met the University’s English Language requirements  by 4 July 2012 or be a current undergraduate student in their final year or a current postgraduate student at a University in an English speaking country.  Some Schools require a standard of English higher than the University minimum;
  • Applicants must be commencing PhD research study at the University of Leeds for the first time in Session 2012/13;
  • These awards are not open to individuals who have already been awarded a Doctoral degree or equivalent qualification;
  • Applicants who have previously applied for a Fully-Funded International Research Scholarship (FIRS) for Session 2012/13 (including those currently on the reserve list) are eligible to apply for LIRS in Session 2012/13 (provided they meet all other eligibility criteria).
  • LIRS scholarships should not normally be held concurrently with other Scholarships, although it may sometimes be possible for a LIRS award holder to hold another scholarship paying maintenance of no more than £3,590 a year in value.   Successful LIRS award holders may, if they are able to obtain additional funding, hold a bursary which pays travel/accommodation costs etc for UK/overseas fieldwork visits and attendance at conferences.
