In collaboration with the Newton Trust, Queens' College is offering three awards worth £12,000 each for MPhil students in the academic year 2017 - 18. Only UK (Home) students are eligible for these awards, and preference is given to those who declare their intention of continuing to the PhD. All UK candidates who indicate that they are applying for funding and whose applications are received by the University's funding deadline (4 January 2017) will be considered for these awards, which are allocated on the basis of a University-wide competition. Applications for these awards are made via the University's standard postgraduate application process (for which see here). For further information on the Newton Trust scheme, see here.
