The Sir Jules Thorn
PhD Scholarship

The Trust provides funding for two four-year scholarships embedded within the Doctoral Training Programmes of UK universities, which manage the application process, including calls for applications. The programme is not available for unsolicited applications.

The Trust offers two scholarships each year at separate institutions, each scholarship providing funding of up to £112,000 for a PhD study over 4 years. On each occasion that the programme is run, four eligible institutions will be invited to participate in the competition for the scholarships available.
