For candidates able to demonstrate outstanding academic performance, commencing their doctoral studies by research at the University of Southampton in 2020/21, we will be offering a number of prestigious Presidential Scholarships:
The scholarship will be payable for a maximum of up to 3.5 years, or until the date of the first submission of the thesis, whichever is the soonest. The stipend will be reviewed annually and pegged to the UKRI minimum. The maximum length of time and payment level may be adjusted pro rata for part time students.
Check out the eligibility criteria on our Presidential Scholarships pages. No formal application for the scholarship is required from the candidate: Schools will put forward eligible and suitable candidates for consideration for the scholarship automatically.
