Marshall PhD Programme (USA)

The Marshall PhD programme is particularly well suited for students that are interested in a particular field of research or wish to train with a particular supervisor in the School of Life Sciences.

The key elements of the programme consist of:

  • PhD projects in laboratories run by internationally renowned scientists
  • structured training and mentoring programme
  • full access to the SLS postgraduate training programme and “Generic Skills” courses
  • University fees, cost of living expenses, book and thesis grant, research and travel grants and fares to and from United States are included in the scholarship

All Marshall research scholars present their work regularly, including at the annual School Symposium and at cohort-based retreats.

The Application for the 2021 Marshall Scholarship is now closed.

The Application form for the 2022 competition will be available in early June 2021.
