Stamps Scholarships

We are excited to advise you of a new funding opportunity for American PhD students at Queens’.

The College has recently entered into a new combined funding award agreement with the prestigious Strive Foundation for Stamps Scholars, USA

The value of the award will be up to £8000 p.a., which may be used towards fees or maintenance, plus an enrichment fund of £6000 over three years. This is equivalent to £2000 p.a. but, unless there is a compelling reason, it is preferred that this be used in the second and third years. The Foundation places great emphasis on enrichment of the student experience, by which is meant spending time on activities that go beyond the normal confines of the academic environment. For example, enrichment funds could be used for involvement in:

  • leadership/entrepreneurship training
  • charitable or community work
  • expeditionary work overseas
  • participation in sporting activities or the performing/creative arts.

You can apply for this fund here

On the online application form you will be asked to upload the following documents:

  • A full Curriculum Vitae
  • A statement of your academic record to date
  • And details of any funding or partial funding for fees and maintenance of which you are already in receipt. 

There will be two rounds of applications for the academic year 2022-23. Applications are therefore due either by 26 February 2022 for consideration in the first round, or by 31 May 2022 for consideration in the second.

You should apply once you have been accepted by the department/ faculty; the latest date for applications is 31st May

However, we would advise you to apply as soon as possible, as applications will be considered as soon as they are received.
