Applications are invited for the Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation Scholarship to support a suitably qualified postgraduate student for a three year PhD programme of research in the Department of Geography at Durham University, UK. The scholarship is to support research of high academic quality that helps to build resilience to hazards and risks challenging human societies in the global south.
One Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation Scholarship is available for the academic year 2014-15, funded by the Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation established in memory of Mr Christopher Moyes, OBE. Applicants, who may be of any nationality, must possess a First or Upper Second Class degree, or equivalent in a relevant field of study. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding potential to undertake research at the highest level, as well as capacity and motivation to conduct research with strong potential to make a difference in society, especially for relatively low income populations in the Global South.
The successful candidate will register for a full-time PhD in the Department of Geography at Durham University. The 3-year Scholarship covers Durham University tuition fees, and a maintenance stipend to cover living costs and Middle Common Room (Postgraduate) membership fees for Van Mildert College. The Scholarship will also include a separate element for costs of work in the field or laboratory work.
Applications can be considered for PhD projects in geography and from overseas students from outside or within the EU. The application is available to download.
