MASTS Prize Studentships

There are 10 "prize" studentships available within MASTS. These will be awarded on merit and can be held at any of the MASTS institutions. The onus is on students to apply and to choose the supervisor and the project that fits their interests. Therefore, if you know of potential people who might wish to apply it is worth letting them know. Any academic or senior researcher within SOI would be eligible to be a supervisor. 

Where students are from overseas, these may be linked to the ORS Awards .
