Thanks to the generosity of Petreans the opportunity has arisen to award a part-funded Graduate Studentship at Peterhouse. Applications are invited from students who are seeking match-funding in order to undertake PhD study in the University of Cambridge. Applicants must by the time of application be in receipt of an offer of a place as a PhD student at the University. We are able to offer up to £10,000 to assist with the cost of PhD study.
