Research Funding Opportunities [MAY 2016] - Updated

This page will be constantly updated with new funding opportunities worldwide.

New Zealand Postdoctoral Fellowships will enable recipients to undertake full-time research programmes within New Zealand in areas of science, technology, engineering or mathematics at an eligible research institution.  This year there are up to five positions on offer. Researchers whose doctoral degrees were conferred no more than 4 years prior to the application closing date are eligible to apply.

Cambridge-Rutherford Memorial PhD Scholarships are jointly funded by the Rutherford Foundation Trust and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust.  These Scholarships are intended to provide full support to enable completion of a PhD at the University of Cambridge in pure or applied science.

International PhD Scholarship (a grant-in-aid) will contribute towards a student’s full-time study for a PhD in any area of science, technology, engineering or mathematics at an eligible host research institution.  The award intends to provide a financial contribution towards the support of a PhD scholar at a prestigious international research institution in their chosen field of study. The Scholarship is not intended to cover all of the costs associated with studying towards a PhD abroad.  Applicants are expected to negotiate with the host research institution or other charitable funding organisations to reduce course fees or provide additional financial support to cover any shortfall in funding.
