Queen Mary University of London Scholarship 2018-19
Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)-Herchel Smith Scholarship 2018-19 is offered for PhD degree in the field of Intellectual Property. The award covers three years of study while in full time enrolment, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports. The award will cover all tuition fees whether at the Home/EU rate or the overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and non-EU applicants. In addition, an award of around £16,500 per year (reviewed annually) will be paid to the recipient on a monthly basis throughout the calendar year starting from September 2018.
Successful recipients of this award are not required to undertake any teaching or research assistant duties, but they are expected to participate in the Intellectual Property community at Queen Mary University of London.
- The Herchel Smith PhD Scholarship Programme recognises and supports exceptional full-time students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to intellectual property law. This programme supports PhD students in intellectual property law and those working at the intersection of intellectual property law and other areas of sciences and humanities.
- The award is for new applicants who will enrol at the start of the coming academic year, in September 2018. Therefore, current PhD students who enrolled prior to September are not eligible to apply for the award.
- Please note that PhD programmes are available September entry only. Applicants must fulfil the necessary academic requirements to be eligible for the programme (this includes graduating from their LLM course with the specified grade or higher). Therefore, students graduating in November 2018 can only start their studies in September 2018 and are not eligible for this award (unless they have previously graduated from an LLM degree taken earlier).
- It is therefore open to both the UK and non-EU applicants.
Deadline: 1st June 2018
