Applications are now invited from persons who are qualified in science or medicine who are carrying out PhD research within the area of occupational and environmental health at a UK university. The Colt Foundation fellowships are very competitive and are aimed at supporting the best students.
Worth of Scholarships: Payments will include UK/EU fees and overseas candidates applying would be expected to meet the difference in UK/EU and International rates. A sum to cover research expenses will also be awarded. The stipend for living expenses for the first year is £14,000 (£16,000 inside London), rising with inflation for the following two years.
How to Apply
There are no application forms. Prospective students should apply to Mrs Jackie Douglas, through the address below, including an outline of the proposed research which demonstrates the occupational content of their work, a CV, a detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor and the contact details of two referees.
The application must be submitted by the student personally and not by their supervisor on their behalf, although it is expected that the supervisor will have an input to ensure that the project can lead to a successful PhD. Fellowships are awarded in competition, and the outline must therefore contain sufficient detail to enable the Selection Panel to determine that the work has been well-designed, that the work is worthwhile and can be completed in the three-year period, and to enable the Panel to decide which students should be interviewed.
Deadline: October 15, 2012, and those shortlisted for interview will be asked to attend in London in December 2012.
