Profile Description

Cumberland Lodge, the educational charity based in Windsor Great Park, seeks applicants for a jointly-funded, 3-year doctoral scholarship in partnership with Royal Holloway, University of London, to start in September 2020.

In addition to Home/EU tuition fees, this scholarship provides:

  • £12,600 annual tax-free stipend

You will also be required to facilitate St Catharine's Sessions - group discussions on topical social or ethical issues - for these visiting groups, as required.

Your PhD will be supervised by staff in your academic department at Royal Holloway, and you will also receive ongoing mentoring and support from academic staff at Cumberland Lodge.
