New scholarships available for selected Master's projects at the Cabot Institute for the Environment

25 November 2020

The Cabot Institute for the Environment is launching two to three scholarships for its Master's by Research in Global Environmental Challenges.

These scholarships will be awarded to students who take on projects linked to our Innovation Fund projects. These scholarship projects will be exciting, innovative, and cross disciplinary areas of enquiry that will be a great opportunity for students.

The Cabot Master's by Research allows you to undertake an independent research project supported by an expert supervisor. As part of this unique course, you will also have access to a training schedule designed to enhance your career prospects and develop an interdisciplinary approach to the most complex environmental challenges of today.

If your application is successful, and you start before July 2021, you will get a £3000 'Innovation Scholarship' fund to support you in your studies.

The Innovation Fund projects you can get involved in include:

  • Re-evaluating Chernobyl: improving our knowledge and understanding of the global radiological hazard associated with the world’s worst nuclear accident through an enhanced monitoring provision.
  • Live music-making in the no-fly, no-contact world: musical and technological innovation towards a new sustainability.**
  • Understanding agricultural azole use, impacts on local water bodies and AMR: building an interdisciplinary evidence base in Devon and Bristol.**

These are exciting and prestigious MScR projects as they are linked to cross-faculty Innovation Fund projects.  If you are interested in a scholarship working on one of these projects, please see the further information section below for details on how to apply.
