An organisation called DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is offering scholarships to Undergraduates, PhD students, Postdocs and Junior Academics who would like to travel to Germany for study periods. Deadlines for applications for funding in 2019 vary from 24 September to 15 December 2018, depending on your category.

Studying at Harvard University & Massachusetts Institute of Technology 2019-20

Postgraduate students can apply for full funding scholarships to either The Frank Knox Fellowships  or The Kennedy Memorial Trust.

The Frank Knox Fellowships are for British students to study a postgraduate course (Master’s degree or the research period as part of UK-based PhD.) They give full funding to British students who wish to study at Harvard University in the Academic year 2019/20 for either one or two years. 

The Kennedy Memorial Trust is sponsoring Kennedy Scholarships (fees and maintenance) for the academic year 2019-20. The funding is to enable UK graduates who are also British citizens to undertake further study in Harvard or MIT. These are available for postgraduate programmes leading to Master’s, PhD and special student/non-degree.

The deadline for both is 24 October 2018. More details.
