EPA Cephalosporin-Linacre Scholarships

EPA-Cephalosporin-Linacre Scholarships are funded by the EPA Cephalosporin Fund in association with Linacre College and will provide full scholarships for students in the Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) and the EPSRC Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research Centre for Doctoral Training (SABS R³). Scholarships will be awarded to students from socio-economic backgrounds that are under-represented in doctoral research. 

Eligibility will be assessed on the same basis as eligibility to participate in the University of Oxford’s UNIQ+ Graduate Access internship programme. Therefore, to be eligible for these studentships students should have been previously admitted to, or determined to be eligible for admission to UNIQ+, or meet the criteria for admission for UNIQ+ based on socioeconomic information provided during the online application process.

Students who wish to be considered for these scholarships are requested to indicate their agreement for socioeconomic data to be used in assessing their application when submitting the standard CV used by the DTP and SABS R³ programmes.
