The aim of Imperial College, Department of Chemical Engineering is to select the most outstanding PhD students and offer them financial support. In the interest of fairness, we have one selection process for all the scholarships that are administered by the College. You will need to submit your PhD application by the following deadlines in order to be considered for the Chemical Engineering PhD Scholarships or any other scholarships which are administered by the College (e.g. the President’s Scholarships, the CSC Imperial scholarships):
- Round 1: 31 October for entry in October of the following year
- Round 2: 31 January for entry in October of the same year
Please note that where there is a later deadline advertised for College scholarships, the departmental deadline before the College deadline will apply, as you will need to go through the departmental selection process, including interviews, before we can put you forward for a College Scholarship.
An academic selection panel will screen the applications that demonstrate the necessary achievement and potential and will shortlist the most outstanding candidates for interview. If you are shortlisted and successful in your interview, you will be sent a list of available projects and supervisors and asked to select 2 projects offered by different supervisors in the order of your choice.
