About 2017/2018 Queen Mary University of London Intellectual Property PhD – Herchel Smith Scholarships
Application is currently ongoing for the 2017/2018 Queen Mary University of London Intellectual Property PhD – Herchel Smith Scholarships.
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 closing date for Herchel Smith scholarship award applications is Thursday, June 1, 2017, and decisions will be made in the following month.
Value of Scholarship
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.
- The Herchel Smith PhD Scholarship Programme recognises and supports exceptional full-time students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to intellectual property law. This programme supports PhD students in intellectual property law and those working at the intersection of intellectual property law and other areas of sciences and humanities.
- The award is for new applicants who will enrol at the start of the coming academic year, in September 2017. Therefore, current PhD students who enrolled prior to September 2017 are not eligible to apply for the award.
- Please note that our PhD programmes are September entry only. Applicants must fulfil the necessary academic requirements to be eligible for the programme (this includes graduating from their LLM course with the specified grade or higher). Therefore, students graduating in November 2017 can only start their studies in September 2018 and are not eligible for this award (unless they have previously graduated from an LLM degree taken earlier).
