The full cost of a PhD Scholarship is between £65,000 and £125,000, depending on the area of study, but with the match funding, a gift of half this sum will enable us to award a new PhD in the relevant area. For UK donors whose gift is eligible for gift aid, a PhD Scholarship can be fully funded for a net cost of as little as £6,000 a year over three years, dependent on their rate of tax. These philanthropic gifts will be crucial to enabling us to recruit high-calibre young researchers to tackle big questions in areas such as cancer, climate change, food security and sustainable energy – and provide fresh insights on culture, society and the way we live our lives.
