The University of St Andrews was founded in 1413 making it Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world. Over the past six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research. This is an historic moment for the University as we look back on six centuries of tradition and of belief in the value of people, ideas and excellence. It falls to the present generation to preserve these values for the generations to come.
As we stand on the threshold of our seventh century, the University is to invest in the future of the next generation of world-leading researchers by launching a new prestigious PhD Scholarship scheme. These anniversary scholarships are available from September 2013 and comprise fees plus an annual stipend of up to £15,000 for three years. These scholarships are available across all the disciplines in the Arts & Humanities, Sciences, and Medicine. Up to 100 anniversary scholarships are available.
The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic quality and research promise, and are open to all to apply. General advice on how to apply for a PhD place and how to be considered for an anniversary PhD Scholarship can be sought from PG Admissions Office by emailingpgrecruitment@ st-andrews. ac.uk.
Specific details on how to apply in a particular discipline may be obtained via the Director of Postgraduates for each School.
