Newton College Masters Scheme

The Newton College Masters Scheme offers awards to outstanding students of 'Home' fee status who have applied for an MPhil or other Masters-level course with the intention of continuing to a PhD.

Awards are of £12,000 and are funded jointly by colleges and the Isaac Newton Trust.  Most colleges participate in the scheme.

Applicants who have applied by their course funding deadline are considered automatically through the Graduate Funding Competition.  Funding deadlines can be found in the course directory on the Graduate Admissions website.

Applicants who have already obtained or are about to obtain a Master-level qualification or doctoral qualification will not be eligible.

Successful applicants are contacted from March.  We regret that we are not able to contact unsuccessful applicants.
