Several full PhD scholarships are available for 2011 entry into the PhD 
Programme in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at LSE:

1. LSE Philosophy Scholarship

The Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School 
of Economics offers one full PhD Scholarship every year. The Scholarship covers 
tuition fees and living expenses of £13,000 each year for three years, with 
annual renewal subject to satisfactory academic performance. They are 
available both for Home UK/EU and Overseas students undertaking research in 
philosophy within the department. From the second year onwards, students will 
ordinarily teach up to three undergraduate classes (1h/week each for 20 weeks) 
as part of their funding. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of 
academic merit and research potential.

2. LSE PhD Scholarships

The LSE offers a number of full scholarships for new PhD students. The 
scholarships cover fees and living expenses of £13,000 each year for three 
years. They are available for Home UK/EU and Overseas students undertaking 
research in any LSE discipline, with annual renewal subject to satisfactory 
academic performance at the School. Scholarships will be awarded on academic 
merit and research potential.

3. AHRC Block Grants

The Arts and Humanities research Council (AHRC) offers PhD funding via its 
Doctoral Awards Scheme. Doctoral awards provide support for up to three years 
of full-time study, or up to five years of part-time study. Under the AHRC's 
new Block Grant Scheme the LSE has two philosophy scholarships every year.

The AHRC has eligibility restrictions in place. The regulations state that to 
be eligible for a full award, the candidate must show that s/he has "a 
relevant connection with the UK, usually through residence". This is commonly 
taken to mean that candidates fall in one of the following categories: (a) 
they are UK citizens; (b) they are EU citizens who have spent the last three 
years in the UK either in full time education, full time work, or part time 
study/work; (c) they are non-EU citizens who have spent the last three years 
in the UK in full time employment (but not as students). If you do not fall 
within either of these groups but believe you have a relevant connection to 
the UK it is worth checking with the AHRC whether they would consider your 
application.

Students can be considered for all of these scholarships as soon as they have 
submitted their application for the MPhil/PhD programme. Those who wish to be 
considered should send an email to philosophy.phd at lse.ac.uk. The deadline for 
applications for the LSE Philosophy Scholarship, LSE PhD Scholarships, and the 
AHRC PhD scholarship is January 15.
