Bath is a leading research institution nurturing the next generation of talent. Often, it is high-calibre PhD students who make our impactful research possible.
Thanks to support from alumni and friends, we are making breakthroughs in areas such as improving human health, pioneering green technology and shaping global society.
Please consider making a gift to help us build four crucial PhD Scholarships this year:
Research with Impact Scholarships to enable a critical mass of PhD student cohorts to make a difference across three priority areas: Sustainability; Health & Wellbeing; and Digital.
The programme, funded by generous philanthropic donations to the University, will support 28 students over four years with a UKRI-pegged stipend and some study costs whilst the University funds the fees. Support these scholarships to respond to the greatest global challenges and opportunities of our time.
Scholarships for home PhD students of Black African and Caribbean heritage to enable more diverse people at every stage of their education. We know from the results of the Hamilton Commission Report there are many barriers and challenges facing Black people on their journey through education and academia, especially in STEM subjects.
We aim to create four scholarships for home PhD students of Black African and Caribbean heritage. A four-year PhD scholarship gift will unlock a contribution from the University to pay the PhD course fee for students awarded these scholarships. Support these scholarships to ensure more talented Black students can excel and make a difference in academia.
Funding for PhD students caring for young children to remove additional financial barriers that aspiring PhD scholars are facing. It is more important than ever that we have a pipeline of experienced academics, regardless of their family circumstances.
We aim to create a new fund for PhD students’ childcare costs to remove financial barriers that would otherwise prevent experienced academics from contributing to a vibrant research environment addressing real-world problems.
Scholarships for international PhD students to enable the University to attract and retain the best students from around the world to lead vital research in areas such as climate change or food insecurity, which disproportionately affect populations in the global south.
Providing international PhD scholarships will ensure we attract problem-solvers leading this research with relevant perspectives of the problems we are trying to tackle. We aim to create 12 international PhD scholarships. A four-year PhD scholarship gift will unlock a contribution from the University to pay the PhD course fee for students awarded these scholarships.
Support these scholarships to attract the brightest minds from around the world.
