Gledhill Research Studentship

The David Gledhill Research Studentship was established by the College Council on 7 March 2001 from an endowment given in memory of Mr David Gledhill (matriculated 1955). The holder of the Studentship must be, or seek to be, a candidate for the degree of Ph.D. in the University of Cambridge.  The Studentship is open to men or women of any nationality.

Two new Studentship in (provisionally one in AHSS subjects and one in STEM subjects) will be awarded via the University's central funding competitions in 2020/21 admission round (to commence in October 2020). Note, that there is no separate application though Sidney Sussex College for this award. Candidates do not need to nominate Sidney Sussex as their College of first or second choice in order to be considered, however applicants who have been accepted by Sidney Sussex will be given priority in consideration. Once you put an application through the central University system, requesting in the appropriate place to be considered for centrally administered funds, it will automatically also be considered for the Gledhill Research Studentship.
