These scholarships are awarded every year to applicants who intend to start a Ph.D., Ph.D. Track or MPhil degree in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences in September 2018 or January 2019.
The scholarships cover EU tuition fees and are tenable for the duration of the student’s chosen postgraduate course (2 yrs for MPhil, 3 years for Ph.D. and 4 years for Ph.D. Digital Arts and Humanities and DSocSc).
Eligible Countries: The scholarships are open to EU and non-EU students.
Entrance Requirements: To be eligible, the applicants must be following all the given criteria:
The scholarships are open to EU and non-EU students. However, the funding will only cover the EU fee, so successful non-EU applicants will be responsible for the balance.

A referee’s report will be required as part of the application process.
