The Colt Foundation 2020 PhD Fellowships

Each year, the Foundation awards up to four Fellowships, to enable holders to study for a PhD in occupational or environmental health at a UK university. Fellowships are normally for three years, but we will consider applications for awards over shorter periods from applicants who have already started a PhD, but do not have full funding from other sources to cover completion of their degree.

The Colt Foundation Fellowships


Aim and Benefits of The Colt Foundation Fellowships

The Fellowship provides 3 elements of funding:

  • Stipend: The rate for the stipend in 2019/20 was £15,009 (£17,009 for students in London), and it rises each year according to UK inflation.
  • Research expenses: Up to £5,000 per year towards research expenses (which must be satisfactorily justified)
  • Fees: The Foundation provides full fees for UK/EU students. Where applicants from other countries are required to pay higher fees, they are expected to make up the difference from other sources.

Requirements for The Colt Foundation Fellowships Qualification

In selecting our Fellows, we take 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 PhD training will be undertaken, including the commitment of the supervisors. We are most keen to support individuals with potential to become future research leaders in occupational and environmental health.



Application Deadline

September 1, 2020


How to Apply

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 PhD. We do not have an application form, but we ask that applications 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 analysed to answer the study questions.
  • The applicant’s CV.
  • A detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor.
  • Contact details of two referees.

Applications should be submitted to the Foundation’s Director, Mrs Tash Heydon by email ([email protected]) or by post. Fellowships are awarded in competition. After initial short-listing, a subset of applicants is invited to interview in London, on the basis of which, the final selection is made.
