Research Awards 2018

Mental Health Research UK (incorporating the Schizophrenia Research Fund) is pleased to announce a competition for one or more PhD Scholarships beginning September 2018. 


Mental Health Research UK makes research awards focusing on research into the causes of mental illness by advertising opportunities in Research Fortnight, on its website, and through its email list. Please note that the charity does not accept any requests for funding from individuals. 

The John Grace QC Scholarship 2018 and the Mental Health Research UK PhD Scholarship 2018 are awarded in the field of Schizophrenia and applications for a scholarship in the field of Children and Young People’s Mental Health are also welcomed. 

We invite applications from UK Universities for these Scholarships. Deadline for applications is 16th June 2017.

The full information about how to apply, including the relevant forms to be completed are shown on each scholarship page.
