The DTP in Environmental Research is proud to announce that in 2023 we will be co-funding two studentships with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as part of their Scholarship Programme. The aim of the programme is to build capacity in the understanding and management of climate change in developing countries through providing opportunities for young scientists from developing countries and economies of transition to undertake studies that would not be possible without the intervention of the fund. For this reason a socio-economic questionnaire must be completed as part of the application process.
About the scholarships
These scholarships will support post-graduate students from developing countries, for research that advances the understanding of the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts, and options for adaptation and mitigation.
The scholarship provides a four-year fully-funded studentship which covers the course fee, and a tax-free stipend equal to the UKRI minimum stipend, which is £17,668 in 2022-23. There will be an increase each year. In addition there is a research and training support grant of £8000 to help cover the cost of lab consumables, fieldwork, training courses, travel and costs associated with conferences, etc.
The scholarship is aligned with Jesus College to which students will be affiliated during their research project. Jesus College are also generously contributing towards the course fee.
The scholarships are targeted at young scientists from developing countries to undertake studies that would not be possible without the intervention of the fund. In order to apply, you must come from one of the countries shown in the list on the right hand side of this page. Students applying for the IPCC23 scholarship will automatically also be considered for the standard DTP scholarships.
How to apply
You follow the same process of application as indicated on the how-to-apply page, and our course page on the main university site, but you should also quote the studentship code IPCC23 in the "studentship code" field of the online application form, to indicate that you would also like to be considered for this scholarship.
