Wolfson Microelectronics Scholarship for 2009-2010 Session
The University of Edinburgh will offer two scholarships in 2009-2010 to students who plan to undertake PhD degrees in the School of Informatics or the School of Engineering and Electronics at the University of Edinburgh. The value of each award will be £15,000 per academic year and is tenable for a maximum of three years. Please note that no Wolfson Microelectronics Scholarships will be available for 2008-2009.
The scholarship may be terminated at any time when an unsatisfactory progress report is received from the School or if the scholarship holder ceases to be registered as a full-time student at the University of Edinburgh.
The scholarship is awarded to an MPhil/PhD student intending to study in the School of Informatics or the School of Engineering and Electronics at the University of Edinburgh. The sole criterion for the scholarships will be academic excellence; successful applicants are likely to hold or expect to achieve a UK first class Honours undergraduate degree or the overseas equivalent.
Applicants can download an application form in Rich Text Format (RTF) or PDF (which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader), or request one to be sent to them from:
The Scholarships and Student Finance Office

A completed scholarship application form, together with a copy of your degree transcript and two academic references, should be received by the Scholarships and Student Finance Office by the closing date of 1 April 2009 in order to be considered for the scholarship.
Applicants should also have applied for a place for postgraduate study at the University well in advance of the scholarship deadline.
The selection panel will meet in early May 2009 to select the scholarship holder. The winner of the scholarship will be announced in mid May 2009.
