Alzheimer’s Research Trust PhD Scholarship

  • DeadlineDeadline: Please visit website for details
  • All East Midlands, EnglandAll East Midlands, England


The lead applicant and point of contact must be based in a UK academic/research institution. However, the application can include researchers or institutions outside the UK.

PhD Scholarships can only be applied for by individual or joint supervisors, not students. However, the Lead Applicant can include a named student as part of the application form. We are open to considering applications for part-time PhD students. In this case we will fund for a maximum of four years and there should be a clear justification. If you have any questions related to part-time working please contact the research team at

The Lead Supervisor is expected to have a contract (fixed term or tenure) which covers the proposed duration of the grant. If the Lead Applicant does not hold a tenure appointment, the application must include a co-supervisor that does.

If the project requires ethical approval and/or Home Office licences, the award is dependent upon the requisite approvals being granted.

Alzheimer’s Research UK recognises it may not be possible to identify the student until after a funding decision has been made. However, the confirmation of an award is dependent on Alzheimer’s Research UK approval of the student who will undertake the project. This confirmation will require evidence that the student is of high calibre and strongly motivated.

Although it is anticipated that the PhD Scholarship will begin at the start of the next academic year, there is some flexibility with respect to start date.
