Funding

Fully-funded Engineering and Physical Sciences Council (EPSRC) Future Infrastructure and Built Environment (FIBE) CDT studentships are available for UK and EU students eligible for EPSRC awards subject to changes in law due to the EU Referendum. Please see this link http://www.cam.ac.uk/eu  Eligible candidates will be considered automatically if they ticked the relevant scholarship on their application.  Candidates are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible since there is a limit on the number of funded places. 

The EPSRC FIBE CDT studentships cover UK University fees and an annual student maintenance stipend (which is set in accordance with the national minimum stipends). In addition, the studentships include a budget for approved MRes/PhD project-specific travel costs e.g for a secondment with an Academic or Industrial Partner. Funding will normally be for four years but will be dependent upon the successful completion of the MRes programme, a PhD continuation assessment and fulfilment of first year PhD registration requirements.
