The Leverhulme Trust Postgraduate Study Abroad Scholarships
The Leverhulme Trust is one of the largest providers of postgraduate funding in the UK and they are offering 15 extremely generous studentships to individuals who wish to undertake advanced study or research abroad. The Study Abroad Studentships provide maintenance expenses of £17,000 per year for up to a period of 24 months, as well as return airfares.
Students are eligible to apply for these studentships no matter what their subject area – however, they must be able to demonstrate how their work or further study would benefit from being conducted overseas rather than in the UK. The studentships also provide a partner allowance of £6, 000 per year if a student is accompanied by a dependent partner.
Eligible candidates need to have been resident in the UK for at least five years and need to hold a UK Bachelor degree. Applications for these studentships will open in September 2014 and are expected to close mid-January 2015. Successful candidates will be informed by the end of May 2015.
