New PhD students undertaking full-time research in the area of Intellectual Property (IP) can apply for a Herchel Smith Scholarship to start in the 2017-18 academic year. The award covers three years of study while in full time enrolment, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports.
The award will cover all tuition fees whether at the Home/EU rate or the overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and non-EU applicants. In addition, an award of around £16,000 per year (reviewed annually) will be paid to the recipient on a monthly basis throughout the calendar year starting from September 2017.
