Funding for PhD studies comes from a variety of sources including overseas universities or governments, industry, scholarships and private funding. Some students have already secured funding when they apply to the School, however many students are looking for funding to support their studies. The funding you may be able to apply for will depend on your nationality and the area of research you wish to undertake. Funding opportunities from the University of Leeds and UK Research Councils are normally advertised between October and December.  Some funding opportunities for 2018/19 are listed below and will be added to throughout the year. Information on Research Council and University Scholarship opportunities for 2018/19 will be updated shortly.   The University's Postgraduate Scholarship website is a database that can be searched by subject and nationality.
