The four year PhD Prize Studentships are our flagship fully-funded awards, which are open to outstanding candidates of any nationality without restriction. Support for the programme comes from a variety of sources including the University of Oxford, the Medical Research Council and the Clarendon Fund. We expect to make around 15 awards annually to students of the highest calibre. Students are full members of the University of Oxford and receive a stipend of £18,000/annum when they are based in the UK. In exceptional circumstances, additional awards may be made. The NDM Prize Scholarship awards allow students to focus on research in a single laboratory for the full 4 years.
