The Alexander Crummell Scholarships

The Alexander Crummell Master's & PhD Scholarships are exciting new opportunities for UK-based students who would not otherwise have the means to consider continuing on to postgraduate level study. These are "full ride" scholarships meaning that all fees and maintenance costs are covered.

The College has, since 2020, created more than 19 new postgraduate scholarships (full cost) in science and arts-based subjects for UK-domiciled candidates from "access" backgrounds.

These scholarships are particularly intended for candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds or those currently under-represented at the University. These candidates will be identified using established criteria, including those currently used for undergraduate admissions.

The Scholarships are open to all students intending to commence an MPhil or PhD in a science or arts-based subject. Priority will be given to those students who have indicated Queens' College as their first college preference in the application to the University’s Postgraduate Admissions Office.

Applications for the Academic year 2023/'24 are now open, please apply via our online form by the end of April 2023.

The award of a Scholarship is conditional upon being accepted by the relevant University Department (via PAO).
