The Research Scholarships Scheme supports students studying for a doctorate. The Scheme's objective is to contribute to the Coleg’s strategic aim of ‘the promotion and development of scholarship, research and publishing through the medium of Welsh’ by attracting the most brilliant and enthusiastic graduates to the scheme each year, and giving them the opportunity to be part of a wider community of people working through the medium of Welsh within the higher education sector.
Up to ten new Research Scholarships are awarded each year, and award-holders will receive funding for three years equivalent to Research Council UK’s (RCUK) post-graduate scholarships.
The Coleg has re-published its invitation for applications and up to 3 additional Research Scholarships will be available for the 2018/19 academic year. The new closing date for applications is 1 June 2018 and an English-language version of the application form can be found below.
