Eligibility for Colt Foundation PhD Fellowships in Occupational/Environmental Health

In selecting Fellows, the Colt Foundation takes into account the academic track record of the applicant, the quality of the research project that will be undertaken, and the environment in which the Ph.D. training will be undertaken, including the commitment of the supervisors. Applicants with the potential to become future research leaders in occupational and environmental health will be supported.

How to Apply for Colt Foundation PhD Fellowships in Occupational/Environmental Health

Applications should be submitted by prospective students, and not by their supervisors, although it is expected that the supervisor(s) will have had input to ensure that the project can lead to a successful Ph.D. Applications must include an outline of the proposed research, including the scientific questions that it will address, the data that will be collected, and how they will be analyzed to answer the study questions. Applicants must also submit their CV and a detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor as well as contact details of 2 referees. The application deadline for 2020 is 1 September 2020. Applications should be sent to the Foundation’s Director, Mrs Tash Heydon through email (tash@coltfoundation.org.uk) through by post.
