4 December 2023
Applications are open and ready to support PhD students at The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources starting in September 2024.
At The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources, we are training future sustainability leaders and heritage professionals through our four PhD courses across our four institutes; the UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources, the UCL Energy Institute, and the UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering.
We understand that students wishing to study with us may need some financial assistance with their studies, and with PhD scholarship season upon us, we share here a range of financial awards aimed at assisting PhD students with their studies. With deadlines approaching in January 2024, we urge prospective applicants to visit the respective scholarships webpages for full information on eligibility, application requirements and deadlines, and to submit their applications imminently.
UCL Research Excellence Scholarships (UCL-RES) offer three years of support with full fees, a stipend of around £21,000 per year and research support funds. These are available to all students irrespective of their background, including existing students. Students need to apply in conjunction with a supervisory team and they will also need to submit a full PhD application by the deadline. The 40 studentships are awarded purely on academic merit (students with strong distinctions and prizes tend to be successful – BSEER has been awarded one scholarship in each of the last two years). All projects are eligible. The deadline for applications is 12 January 2024.
The China Scholarship Council-UCL Joint Research Scholarship (CSC) aims to expand the educational, cultural and technological co-operation between the UK and China and is thus only available to Chinese students. There are five scholarships for which BSEER is eligible and these are applied for via the UCL Research Excellence scholarship scheme, so the deadline is 12 January 2024.
The UCL Research Opportunity Scholarships are reserved for permanent UK residents from certain Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. The five scholarships offer three years of support with full fees, a stipend of around £21,000 per year and research support funds. Students must submit their application to the scheme and also a full PhD application by 12 January 2024.

The UBEL DTP’s ESRC studentships are fully-funded for three to four years (depending on academic pathway) and cover full payment of tuition fees per year, as well as an annual maintenance stipend. The deadline for preliminary applications to the ESRC Studentships Main Competition is on 15 January 2024.
