Postgraduate research scholarships

Funding the world's brightest PhDs

Scholarships from the University of Sheffield and external sources are available for new postgraduate research students to help cover tuition fees and living expenses.

The central scholarship scheme for PhD funding at Sheffield for 2016/17 has now closed. However, there may be projects with funding available. Please see the PhD projects directory for current projects.

We also provide information about external funding bodies and funding search sites where you can investigate more opportunities to fund your postgraduate research.
