International prize studentships for PhD research 2009

The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (link: ) is a collaboration of leading Scottish Universities whose aim is to work together to consolidate and develop Scotland's position as an international research leader in computer science and informatics. As part of this, the Scottish Graduate Academy in Informatics and Computer Science offers 20 international prize studentships per year to outstanding PhD candidates.

SICSA prize studentships are worth around £18, 000 per year for 3 years. They include support for living expenses of at least £12, 940, research expenses and a contribution towards postgraduate fees at the UK standard Home/EU rate (currently £3315). Students who are not UK/EU residents must pay the higher overseas student fee of around £11,500 per year. If you are awarded a SICSA studentship, you may apply to the admitting university for additional support to cover the difference in fees. The award of a SICSA studentship does not guarantee such support.

These studentships are open to excellent students from any country. There are no residency or citizenship requirements. We will consider applicants in any area of computer science and informatics but may give preference to students who are
working in SICSA theme areas:

* Next-generation Internet
* Multi-modal interaction
* Modelling and abstraction
* Complex systems engineering

Students must have or must expect to be awarded a 1st class honours degree or an MSc with Distinction or equivalent GPA scores. Your degree must be in a discipline that is relevant to your proposed field of research.

For more details of how to apply for a SICSA prize studentship, see the SICSA web pages (

Applicants for international prize studentships must complete a SICSA studentship application as well as a postgraduate application to your preferred university.

Applications must be received by 8th February 2009. We will tell you as soon as possible after this date if you have been awarded a studentship. Our aim is to make all offers by mid-March 2009.
