Mental Health Research UK PhD Scholarships 

Mental Health Research UK (incorporating the Schizophrenia Research Fund) is pleased to announce a competition for one or more PhD Scholarships beginning September 2020.

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 2020 is awarded in the field of Schizophrenia. Applications for a Scholarship in the field of Children and Young People’s Mental Health are also welcomed. Our third award will be for a Scholarship in Suicide prevention.
We invite applications from UK Universities for these Scholarships. Deadline for applications is 31st May 2019.

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