2019 Doctoral Scholarship Competition – deadline 4 March

Applications are now open for the British Society for the Philosophy of Science doctoral scholarship for 2019, with a deadline of 4th March 2019.

The competition is open to both UK/EU and international students. The scholarship will cover UK/EU fees at the UK Research Councils rate. International fees will be covered in part or in full, depending on the case, but will be covered at least up to UK/EU levels. The scholarship also includes a maintenance grant at the UK Research Councils rate (£14,777 in 2018/19, £16,777 in London). The scholarship will be awarded for a period equal to the institutional norm for PhD study at the student’s institution minus any time already spent on the PhD. For example, applicants in their first year of postgraduate study at institutions that follow a 2+2 (Masters + PhD) model may apply for three years of funding to begin in the second year of their masters degree. Applicants must apply for all other sources of funding for which they are eligible. The scholarship is conditional on being accepted into an appropriate doctoral programme in philosophy or in philosophy of science at a UK university in time for the start of the 2019-20 academic year.

The closing date for applications is 4th March 2019. Further information, including full details of the application procedure may be found at: http://www.thebsps.org/funding/doctoral-scholarship/ . Any queries should be directed to the Assistant to the Committee at bspsassistant@gmail.com .
