The Henry Ellison Scholarship was established in 1943. The fund was bequeathed by Mr Henry Ellison of Calverley, Leeds for the promotion of research in pure and applied chemistry and physics and is intended to enable promising graduates to gain training in scientific research in the School of Chemistry or School of Physics & Astronomy. One scholarship will be available in the School of Physics and Astronomy in Session 2019/20.

Entry requirements

Applicants must hold a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK Upper Second Class Honours degree. Applicants should either have graduated with the appropriate First Degree or be in their final year of study.

How to apply

To apply for this scholarship, you must submit two separate applications forms:

Research degree application: First of all you, you must apply for a research degree online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section of your application, the name of the PhD you wish to apply for as well as the name of your proposed supervisor. You will receive an acknowledgement email which will include your Student ID Number within 24 hours of submitting your application.  

Funding application: once you are in receipt of a Student ID Number, you must fill out the online application form to be considered for this award.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates.  All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
