20+ new scholarships available for mainland Chinese applicants

3 November 2017

At least 20 four-year PhD research scholarships to be offered to candidates starting in the 2018/19 academic year.

This significant announcement was the result of a joint initiative between the University and China’s pre-eminent scholarship-awarding body, the China Scholarship Council.

Last year, 20 scholarships were on offer following a partnership between the University and the China Scholarship Council being developed by the Bristol Doctoral College’s Director, Terry McMaster. Following the success of the 2017/18 scheme, agreement has been reached to increase the offering for the 2018/19 academic year.

The Bristol Doctoral College continues to plays a key role in coordinating and promoting these scholarship opportunities, both in China and within the University itself, as part of our work to grow Bristol’s international, postgraduate researcher community through innovative partnerships.
