UCL releases five new Santos Scholarships for 2015

University College London (UCL) has today released $600,000 in scholarship funding from Santos to attract students to its world-renowned energy and resources school in Adelaide, Australia.
Up to five fully-funded scholarships will be offered to study the flagship Masters of Science in Energy and Resources Management programme, covering the full cost of tuition for two years full time study plus a possible stipend of $25,000 per annum.
UCL Australia chief executive David Travers says the programme, now in its fifth year, is fast becoming one of the most prestigious energy scholarship programmes in the world, having attracted more than 1000 applications since 2010.
To date, Santos has invested more than $2.5 million in the scholarship programme, enabling 24 students to study at UCL in Australia.
“Current research by Santos Scholarship holders at UCL is at the cutting edge, across a broad range of disciplines within the energy and resources sectors,” Mr Travers says.
“We’re seeing research on shale and other unconventional gas; electricity markets, transmissions and renewables; and the low carbon economy right through to community engagement and monitoring.
“The 2015 round of scholarships, on offer now for applicants, provides an opportunity for students to be part of the growing research community at UCL.”
Successful scholarship applicants will begin their study at the UCL campus in Adelaide in February 2015.

Consistently ranked in the world’s top five best universities, UCL established its first overseas campus in Adelaide in 2010. UCL (Australia) now includes the UCL School of Energy and Resources, Australia, the UCL International Energy Policy Institute and an office of the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory.
UCL was founded in 1826 and counts 21 Nobel Prize winners among past and present alumni.
Ironically, two of Adelaide’s streets were named after members of UCL’s original council. George Grote, an English classical historian, and Henry Brougham, the First Baron and Vaux who eventually became Lord Chancellor.
