University of Sheffield scholarships

UKRI Council scholarships

You must apply for a PhD scholarship at the time of applying for your place on the PhD programme for all the above schemes, apart from WRoCAH where the scholarship application goes directly to them.

Your scholarship application will then be considered, if and after you have been accepted on the programme.

Applying for a scholarship

Whilst the central scholarship deadline listed is 24 January 2024 at 5pm (UK time), the deadline to be considered any of these scholarships within the Management School is 3 January 2024 for all schemes.

You should discuss the most appropriate scholarship for you with your potential supervisor. Scholarships are very competitive, and your application will need to be tailored to the most appropriate source. There are also different routes for scholarship applications, and your supervisor will be able to advise once you have established the most appropriate scholarship application for you.
