The University of Glasgow has a long and continuing tradition of investing in world-leading innovation and research. The secrets of our success have been in:
- creating and promoting an excellent research environment in which to work and study;
- providing cutting-edge facilities and equipment; and
- ensuring that our research output is of the highest quality
Key to this success has been our commitment to investing in people with outstanding research capability and potential.
The prestigious Kelvin Smith PhD Scholarship scheme has been established to continue this investment, allowing the University to support outstanding researchers who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields.
Stimulating and sustaining leading-edge interdisciplinary research in all areas, the schemes have been created in the names of two prominent historical figures who represent the University’s research contribution to the world: Lord Kelvin and Adam Smith.
The prestigious Lord Kelvin/Adam Smith PhD Scholarship scheme was established in 2007 to support the development of innovative, boundary-crossing research at the University of Glasgow. The scheme supports new partnerships between members of staff and will offer outstanding research students both from home and abroad the opportunity to undertake doctoral training in the context of cutting edge interdisciplinary research projects.
