Fully-Funded International Research Scholarships (FIRS)
Closing Date 31 January 2009
As ORSAS awards are no longer being offered from Session 2009/10, the University of Leeds is providing a number of Fully-funded University International Research Scholarships, which are available for high quality international students who will be commencing PhD research study from October 2009 for study in any Faculty at the University of Leeds.
Awards provide full international fees together with a maintenance grant of £13,290 and will be made for one year in the first instance, renewable for a further two years, subject to satisfactory academic progress.
Details about the eligibility criteria and regulations relating to these Scholarships are available from the Application Form. Completed application forms should be returned to the Postgraduate Scholarships Office
As applicants will only be considered if they have received an offer of an academic place for PhD research study from the University of Leeds, applicants are advised to submit their application for an academic place as soon as possible and well before 31 January 2009.
Other Scholarships at the University of Leeds
Details about other Postgraduate Scholarships at the University of Leeds may be found on the Postgraduate Scholarships Website.
This announcement was recently distributed on the AsiaPacificDisability email-based discussion group. In this context, “international students” refers to students from outside of the European Union. If you have missed the January 2009 deadline then you may wish to monitor the University of Leeds website for information on similar scholarship opportunities in future years.
As with all scholarship and other opportunities announced at this blog site, applications and inquiries should please be directed to the sponsors, NOT to We Can Do.
