PhD Opportunities: Funding Available
Eidyn welcomes inquiries from prospective postgraduate students who would like to be affiliated with the Centre. Prospective postgraduate students can find out more about Edinburgh's graduate programme in Philosophy here. (See in particular our placement record and our testimonials from previous postgraduate students). Research postgraduate students who wish to be affiliated with Eidyn simply need to declare this on their application form.
There are a number of sources of funding available specifically for PhD students, and PhD students with research projects related to Eidyn's main research themes would be in a strong position to secure this funding. These sources of funding include the following:
- Department of Philosophy Career Development Scholarships, of which there will be at least three awards made for PhDs starting in 2013;
- University of Edinburgh Principal's Career Development Scholarships;
- University of Edinburgh College of Humanities and Social Sciences Research Awards;
- AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) PhD Scholarships.
Philosophy postgraduate students at the University of Edinburgh are also funded from a variety of other sources, such as the Carnegie Trust. For more details about postgraduate funding available in Philosophy, click here. See also the Univeristy of Edinburgh's scholarship funding page here.
Please note that in most cases the deadline for PhD applications for students starting in autumn 2013 is February 1st 2013. If you plan to apply, but are struggling to make this deadline, then please contact our Postgraduate Director, Dr. Tillman Vierkant. Dr. Vierkant is also happy to answer any general inquiries you might have about our graduate programme.
