One Scholarship shall be awarded annually and competition therefore is very strong.
This prestigious Scholarship consists of the following funding and research support:
The Scholarship is open for application to all prospective full-time postgraduate research students irrespective of nationality, tuition fee status or subject area, starting an academic programme on 1st October 2018.
Please note that prospective MRes, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, and currently registered University of Liverpool MPhil/PhD students, are not eligible for application to this scholarship, this award is only available to candidates planning to start in October 2018.
Prospective applicants must hold a formal offer of study for a PhD programme at the University of Liverpool for the academic session starting on 1 October 2018 and only students who already hold, or are likely to attain in forthcoming examinations, a first-class honours degree (or its equivalent) are likely to be considered by the University’s Scholarship Awarding Committee.
It is expected that, where possible, all candidates for the Duncan Norman Research Scholarship should also have made an application to secure funding from alternate sources for a postgraduate studentship. If offered, the studentship must be accepted, and in such circumstances the Duncan Norman Research Scholarship would provide additional top up funding.
The holder of the Scholarship must register for a PhD at the University of Liverpool and attend any events based in Liverpool that are organised by the Duncan Norman Charitable Trust.
