The University of St Andrews is calling applications from international students to apply for its The Douglas and Gordon Bonnyman Scholarships for PhD in the arts or humanities. It is generously supported by the Linda and Gordon Bonnyman Charitable Trust and is based partly on financial need.

The University of St Andrews is one of the UK’s top universities and is one of Europe’s most research-intensive seats of learning.

Duration of award

  • 3 years

Value of award (per year)

Tuition or maintenance award?

The award will be paid against tuition fees first, and the balance paid as maintenance if the tuition fee rate is below the annual award amount.

How to Apply?

This scholarship is available for application through the Scholarships and Fundingcataloge.

  • After you have applied for your chosen Postgraduate Research course, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the catalog;
  • If you are a current student at St Andrew’s, you can access Scholarships and Funding through MySaint. However, you should wait until after you have applied for your intended postgraduate programme before doing so, to ensure that the scholarship application is linked to that course.
