EPA Cephalosporin-Linacre Scholarships

EPA-Cephalosporin-Linacre Scholarships are funded by the EPA Cephalosporin Fund in association with Linacre College. They provide full scholarships for both SABS and Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) students from socio-economic backgrounds that are under-represented in doctoral research. 

Eligibility is assessed on the same basis as for participation 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.

If you who would like to be considered for these scholarships, please indicate your agreement for socio-economic data to be used in assessing your application when submitting the standard CV (used by SABS R³ as well as the DTP, CiC, and NERC programmes).
