Carnegie/Caledonian PhD Scholarships

The prestigious Carnegie PhD Scholarship scheme supports a limited number of graduates, with first class Honours undergraduate degrees from a Scottish university, who wish to pursue three years of postgraduate research leading to a PhD at a university in Scotland. There is no restriction on the subject or field, and the award may be of interest to those considering applying for a PhD within the ILCR.

Full details about the scholarship are available on the Carnegie/Caledonian PhD Scholarships webpage: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/pg/fees-and-funding/scholarships/carnegie-caledonian/.

Please note that candidates put forward for nomination by Schools should be of outstanding quality.  Overseas applicants are also eligible, and if successful the difference between Home and Overseas fees will be met by the University.
