Graduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

There are many different sources of funding available to support UK/EU and international PhD students in Biological Anthropology, but full scholarships are very competitive. Exceptionally strong candidates for the PhD programme in Biological Anthropology (HUBA22) are entered for scholarship schemes according to eligibility, eg Gates US, Gates International, and scholarship schemes administered by the Cambridge Trust.

Some applicants, according to project, may be eligible to apply for NERC Doctoral Training Partnership scholarships. PhD students undertaking fieldwork may apply to the Department for fieldwork funding assistance which is finite.  Staff will also endeavour to support students in obtaining funding from University, College and external sources. For further information about funding opportunities, visit the Department of Archaeology Funding for Graduate Students page.
