UCL Department of Economics


W M Gorman Graduate Research Scholarships

The department has named these scholarships after Professor W M (Terence) Gorman, 1923-2003, who made a substantial contribution to the development of graduate research in Economics at UCL.

Up to four departmentally funded scholarships, each having a value of £16,200 for students entering the first year or who are already enrolled on the MRes/MPhil/PhD programme, to be known as the W M Gorman Graduate Research Scholarships, may be awarded by the UCL Department of Economics in each session.

  • The scholarships will be awarded to students studying full time on the MRes/MPhil/PhD Programme in the UCL Department of Economics.
  • Scholarships will be of one year in duration.
  • The awards will be made to students who are not already receiving full financial support from other sources for fees and living costs, and will normally be awarded to students who would otherwise be prevented by financial circumstances from taking up a place at UCL.
  • The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic merit.
  • The value of each studentship is £16,200.
  • Applicants for the MRes/MPhil/PhD Programme who wish to be considered for this award should indicate a request for funding consideration on their application for admission (section 26).
  • The qualifications of candidates will be considered by a committee convened by the Head of the UCL Department of Economics.
  • The scholars selected must pursue an MRes/MPhil/PhD Programme in the UCL Department of Economics.
  • The scholarships are tenable for one year and are not renewable.
  • Payment of the scholarships will normally be made in three instalments.
