The Scholarship is available to all prospective full time postgraduate research students, irrespective of nationality or tuition fee status (i.e. whether UK, EU or overseas).
To be eligible for consideration, prospective students must have had their application for MPhil/PhD research approved by the University by the application deadline.
One Scholarship shall be awarded annually, and competition therefore is very strong.
Only students who already hold, or are likely to attain in forthcoming examinations, a first class honours degree (or its equivalent) are likely to be considered by the Advisory Panel.
The Scholarship is available to new students only.
The Scholarship covers full tuition fees and provides a maintenance stipend and other benefits, including accommodation on the University campus to a total value of £20,000 per year.
The Scholarship is awarded for one year in the first instance, but subject to satisfactory academic programme, will be renewed for a total period of up to three years.
For overseas students, it is expected that applicants for the Duncan Norman Research Scholarship should also have made an application via the University for an Overseas Research Students Award Scheme (ORSAS) award.
Any applicant who has made a valid application to the University for an ORSAS award will be invited to apply for the Duncan Norman Research Scholarship.
