Tony May Scholarship
Partial Fee Waiver for International Students worth up to £4000 p.a.
The Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) has recently been awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education. The Prizes are a national honour recognising exceptional achievement and the Institute is receiving the award for “sustained excellence – 40 years’ impact in transport research and teaching”.
Professor Tony May was one of those responsible for this sustained excellence and to recognise his contribution to the field (particularly in developing countries), ITS are offering up to three International Students the chance of reduced fees. These scholarships will provide international students with a life-changing opportunity they would not otherwise have.
This is an exciting opportunity to undertake doctoral study at the Institute for Transport Studies (ITS), one of the world’s most esteemed centres for multi-disciplinary research. The successful applicant will join an internationally-leading team undertaking both pure and applied research that aims to develop a transport system for the future. Our aim is to develop people with enquiring minds to become instrumental in the future of transport.
Applications are invited for the commencement of FULL TIME study during 2010-2011 (there is flexibility in the start-date, up to October 2011).
Whilst candidates are encouraged to suggest their own topic they are advised to visit the ITS website to view previous and current projects.

Evidence of proficiency in English language is also required (IELTS 6.0 or equivalent) where English is not the applicant’s first language.
