Carnegie Caledonian PhD Scholarship

Description

Nominations are sought from prospective PhD supervisors only for the Carnegie/Caledonian PhD Scholarships. The Carnegie Trust is funding 15-18 PhD scholarships across all universities within Scotland. The University of Glasgow has been allocated 7 nominations (out of 60 allowed in total across all Scottish HEIs).

  • A strong 1st Class Honours undergraduate degree from a Scottish university is a pre-requisite for consideration for the scholarship. Applicants should be at least achieving A1-A3 grades in their Honours years (University of Glasgow 22 point scale 20-22).Those with borderline 1st class degree results/dissertations or not holding a first class degree are not eligible to apply
  • Final year students of a Scottish university who expect to achieve a strong 1st Class Honours degree are eligible for nomination but will be withdrawn from the competition is they do not achieve a strong First. Nominees must also have a strong 1st class result in their Honours dissertation and demostrate consistency and/or increasing levels of achievements throughout their studies. 
  • Non-UK/EU domiciled students with a First-Class Honours undergraduate degree from a Scottish university are eligible to be nominated for a Scholarship, but the Trust will only cover the costs of equivalent home fees. The University is expected to waive the outstanding balance for overseas tuition fees. The prospective supervisor of an international student should verify with the relevant Graduate School that they are willing to waive additional fees.
