Swansea University in the UK will provide fully funded research scholarship grants starting in 2022.

The deadline is July 15, 2022.

All recent graduates who wish to begin psychology research studies at Swansea University in the UK may now submit an application! The scholarship fund is available through the UKRI Frontier Research grant and is available for the academic year 2022–2023.

Exceptional individuals with strong academic records are eligible for these awards, and all programs will start in October 2022.

About: Due to the UK’s non-association with the Horizon Europe program, the five-year research project TRUE, which was initially chosen for financing by the European Research Council (Starting Grant no. 101040463), will now be supported by a UKRI Frontier Research guarantee grant. TRUE will create the first systematic account of trust in user-generated evidence (like photos and videos recorded by witnesses on their mobile phones), in the specific context of its use in human rights accountability processes, by combining legal analysis of trials, large online experiments, and mock jury trials.

Candidates must have a master’s degree and an undergraduate degree with a 2.1 GPA. Alternatively, candidates without a master’s degree who possess a UK first class honors degree (or a non-UK equivalent as determined by Swansea University) will be evaluated individually.

Country-specific Information for International Applicants in 2019 and Country-specific Information for European Applicants in 2019 are also available.

If relevant, you must have an overall IELTS score of 6.5 (with no one component scoring below than 6.5) or a Swansea recognized equivalent. You may read more about Swansea University’s English language admissions requirements here.

Any applicant can apply for this scholarship, regardless of country.

Please refer to Swansea University’s degree comparisons to determine your eligibility if you hold a degree from a non-UK institution.
