The UCL Center VEIV Advance Scholarships are small grants worth £4,500. The award is to support three months' work in writing and submitting a research proposal or business plan relating directly to VEIV themes.
Scholarships will be awarded exclusively to (i) UCL Centre VEIV doctoral students who have submitted a final draft of their thesis but have yet to be examined, or (ii) successful recent graduates of the programme. To apply, send me an outline of your research bid or business plan (eg on one side of A4 paper), including a supporting statement from a UCL academic. Business plans should also contain a viable statement of support from a relevant business leader. Outlines will be reviewed by the EngD VEIV management team for relevance and potential impact.
The grant is typically made as an extension to stipend payments.
