Colt Foundation PhD Fellowships 2021-2022
Table of Contents Hide
Up to four Fellowships are awarded each year by the Foundation to allow recipients to pursue a PhD in occupational or environmental health at a UK institution. Fellowships are typically three years long, however, we may consider applications for shorter-term grants from individuals who have already begun a PhD but do not have sufficient money from other sources to complete their degree.
Colt Foundation PhD Fellowships is open for International Students. The scholarship allows PhD level program(s) in the field of Environmental Health taught at UK Universities. The deadline for the scholarship is expired on 01 Sep 2020.
Colt Foundation PhD Fellowships is available to undertake PhD level programs at UK Universities.
Following subjects are available to study under this scholarship program.
- Environmental Health
- The rate for the stipend in 2019/20 was £15, 009 (£17,009 for students in London), and it rises each year according to UK inflation.
- Up to £5,000 per year towards research expenses. (which must be satisfactorily justified)
- The Foundation provides full fees for UK/EU students. Where applicants from other countries are required to pay higher fees, they are expected to make up the difference from other sources.
All students from all over the world
In selecting our Fellows, we take into account the academic track record of the applicant, the quality of the research project that will be undertaken, and the environment in which the PhD training will be undertaken, including the commitment of the supervisors. We are most keen to support individuals with the potential to become future research leaders in occupational and environmental health.
The Selection Process
The applicant’s academic record is highly considered, the quality of the research project that will be performed, and the atmosphere in which the PhD training will be undertaken, including the dedication of the supervisors, when selecting our Fellows. We are especially interested in assisting those who have the potential to become future leaders in occupational and environmental health research.
- Applications should be submitted by prospective students, and not by their supervisors, although it is expected that the supervisor(s) will have had input to ensure that the project can lead to a successful PhD. We do not have an application form, but we ask that applications include:
- An outline of the proposed research, including the scientific questions that it will address, the data that will be collected, and how they will be analysed to answer the study questions.
- The applicant’s CV.
- A detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor.
- Contact details of two referees.
- Applications should be submitted to the Foundation’s Director, Mrs Tash Heydon by email ([email protected]) or by post
