We are pleased to announce two exciting new scholarships for PhD candidates who demonstrate excellence:
Sarah Jarvis Scholarship: To mark the appointment of Dr Sarah Jarvis MBE as a Visiting Professor at the University of Huddersfield, we are offering a 100% fee waiver for a PhD project exploring and investigating how we can become pandemic prepared. Your proposal will focus around health care needs and/or health behaviours. Topics may include, but are not limited to, improving healthy lifestyles (e.g., nutrition, mobility, exercise), reducing risks associated with long-term illness (e.g. Diabetes) and exploring ways in which health and social care teams can work in collaboration to improve access to health care. The scholarship is available to UK domiciled applicants. Further details about the scholarship, eligibility criteria and application process can be found on our Sarah Jarvis Scholarship pages.
Human and Health Sciences BAME scholarships: One fully funded scholarship is offered to applicants from Black, Asian and/or Minority Ethnic (BAME) heritage. The scholarship includes not only a 100% fee waiver but also a stipend at UKRI rates (currently £15,609 per year) for the equivalent of three years’ study.
Additional scholarships comprising fee waivers of 50% of fees (but no stipend) may also be available for excellent BAME candidates who are not selected for the one fully funded scholarship. The availability of these fee waivers will be subject to supervisor availability within the area of research applied for.
The BAME scholarships have been developed in response to the sector-wide underrepresentation of BAME students in postgraduate research and are available to applicants domiciled in the UK from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage. We welcome proposals to conduct research in any area within the scope of our innovative research centres focusing on Psychology, Criminology, Sociology, Politics, Social Work, Nursing, Midwifery, Public Health or Applied Health Sciences. Our Research Portal enables you to explore the full breadth of research conducted by our PhD supervisors. Further details about the scholarship, eligibility criteria and application process can be found on the Human and Health Sciences BAME scholarship pages.
