Durham University Business School have three fully-funded PhD scholarships available for the very best students seeking to study a PhD from October 2016 onwards!
The PhD Scholarship will cover research areas of Management, Marketing, Economics, Finance, Accounting and Islamic Finance.
Each scholarship is fully-funded for a period of three years and pays for tuition fees within this three-year period as well as a financial stipend or grant for each of the three years (~£14,057 per annum). Fees up to the Home/EU level alone are paid. We welcome applications from the very best Home, EU and Overseas students.
As part of this scholarship competition, the best Home/EU applicants will also be put forward for the prestigious ESRC NEDTC competition, while the best overseas applicants will also be put forward for the university-wide Durham Doctoral Scholarship competition (the tuition fee and stipend scholarships for these competitions are equivalent to that offered by the School). Due to specific regulations, overseas applicants for Economics and Finance can also be put forward for the ESRC NEDTC Competition.
The deadline for submitting your application and supporting documentation is Friday 1st February 2016, however initial documents are best submitted to the School’s Doctoral Office by 25 January 2016. For further information on the application criteria, please visit our website.
The School will hold a panel meeting around 1st February 2016 to review and feedback on proposed applications.
Please note - you must include the code ESR16 on your application form (funding section) to indicate that you wish to be considered for the award. No entry into the Scholarship Competition can be considered without a student first submitting an application for PhD study to the School.
