University of Essex Mathematical Sciences Winsten Doctoral Scholarship in UK For Tanzanian Students



Mathematical Sciences Winsten Doctoral Scholarship

2016-17 entry

Our Winsten Scholarship is available to studen
ts applying to study on a PhD (MPhD) course in our Department of Mathematical Sciences. One Winsten Scholarship will be offered in 2016-17.
If you have an excellent academic background and the potential for future achievement you could be eligible. Once awarded, you'll receive the scholarship for three years of your PhD (subject to satisfactory progression). The scholarship includes:
  • a fee waiver equal to the Home/EU fee (international students will need to pay the balance of their fees)
  • Proficio funding, which can be used to 'buy' advanced skills training
The scholarship is named after Professor Chris Winsten, an internationally renowned mathematician who worked at Essex for more than 25 years. He applied mathematical and statistical ideas to areas of economics, leading to the eponymous Prais-Winsten transformation which is still used by modern economists today and to the groundbreaking Beckmann-McGuire-Winsten (1955) approach to transportation economics. Professor Winsten had an intuitive geometrical approach that found solutions to difficult analytic problems. He left the bulk of his fortune to further the reputation of Essex mathematics.

Eligibility

You can apply for this scholarship if you have been offered a place at Essex to start a full-time PhD in 2016-17.
