Trust launches the Wellcome Trust Oncology PhD Studentship

The Cambridge Trust has expanded its activities in the funding of cancer research at Cambridge with the establishment of a new scholarship programme, the Wellcome Trust Oncology PhD Studentship, jointly with the Department of Oncology.

Set to run for an initial period of five academic years from 2019-20, the programme will fund up to two new studentships each year. The studentship, which will cover tuition fees, a maintenance stipend and other selected costs, will be awarded to outstanding candidates offered admission to study for the degree of PhD at the University of Cambridge, who are required to pay tuition fees at the Overseas science PhD rate and are approved by the Department of Oncology.

Each studentship will be awarded for four years to support an MRes followed by a three-year PhD course.
