The Edinburgh Law School and Ewen Cameron Scholarships are fully funded scholarships to students who would like to study their PhD in Scotland.
Three full PhD scholarships are offered by Edinburgh Law School to eligible students. One of these is provided through a generous legacy from alumnus Ewen Cameron in his name.
These scholarships would pay tuition fees and a yearly stipend with UKRI rates (around £15,700 per annum). The stipend would be paid in equal month by month instalments for a maximum of 3 years, subject to satisfactory progress.
Awards will be paid pro-rata for part-time candidates.
