University announces partnership with Martingale Foundation

12 September 2023

The partnership will offer scholarships for students from low-income backgrounds to pursue a master’s and PhD study in the School of Mathematics.

Professor Jonathan Robbins, Head of School of Mathematics, declares “The University of Bristol is delighted to join the Martingale Foundation in offering postgraduate studentships in our School of Mathematics.  We live in a world where mathematics is vital to our daily lives: be it making sense of data through machine learning, artificial intelligence and statistical analysis, or through the development of technologies such as quantum computing and digital healthcare. And progress at the frontiers of pure mathematics will undoubtedly play a key role in the technologies of the future. With the help of the Martingale scholarships, we will be training the next generation of mathematicians, whose endeavours will help us meet current challenges and point the way to new ideas and applications.” 

A Martingale Scholar receives a fully funded scholarship to pursue a master's degree at one of the partner universities along with tailored support to apply for a Martingale PhD scholarship. The funding includes all tuition fees and research expenses, including a tax-free stipend for living costs. Martingale Scholars also join a prestigious development programme that provides training and experiences beyond their university offer to build a pioneering community of STEM leaders.  

Applications for the 2024 Martingale Scholarships are open until the 25th of October 2023; guidance is available on eligibility and how to applyIncoming Martingale Scholars will have the opportunity to apply for an MSc in Mathematical Sciences, developing a wide range of mathematical techniques and completing a summer research project.  

Our MSc in Mathematical Sciences (12 months) is a flexible and challenging programme, taught by leading experts in the field. It will help student to develop a wide range of mathematical techniques and gives them a solid foundation for further research or employment at the highest levels. Our MSc in Mathematical Sciences is a natural springboard for continuing towards a PhD in mathematics and further careers centred around cutting-edge mathematical research. Further information about postgraduate study can be found on the University’s website.
