Scholarships

Since 2003, the Modern Law Review has made available an annual amount in financial support for research students engaged on doctoral research at a university in the United Kingdom on any subject broadly within the publishing interests of the Review. These scholarships are awarded by annual competition based on nominations submitted by the head of department of the University in which the applicant is, or will be, registered as a research student.

Applications for 2017–18

The Modern Law Review is again making financial support available for research students engaged in doctoral research on any subject broadly within the publishing interests of the Review. It therefore invites nominations for scholarships to be submitted by the Head of Department of the University in which the nominated students are currently registered as research students. Only UK Universities are eligible to make a nomination and each university may submit up to two nominations (in addition to a maximum of two renewal applications). To be eligible for nomination, students must have completed the first year of their PhD research and passed any necessary upgrades to PhD status at the time of the award (though not necessarily the time of application). Those who have not yet commenced their PhD at the time of nomination are not eligible for consideration.

In deciding awards the Review takes account of financial need of applicants. Applicants who are fully-funded will not normally be considered for a Scholarship although an award may be made to cover exceptional additional costs such as field research. All applicants must fill out a Financial Information Form. While the amount of any award made will be at the discretion of the Review. Awards will normally be made renewable for up to one year. Nominations for scholarships for 2017–18 must be submitted to the Secretary of the Review no later than 2 May 2017.

  1. The nomination must include the following information:
    1. The name, full curriculum vitae of the nominee and proposed registration period.
    2. A detailed statement of the subject, or proposed subject of research written by the nominated student, of between 1,000-1,500 words. The research statement must make clear what original and substantial contribution to the field the student is aiming to produce and how it fits with the aims of the Review.
    3. An academic reference from the student’s supervisor.
    4. A completed Modern Law Review Financial Information Form (available from HERE).
    5. A statement from the University that, in the event of a Scholarship being awarded, the University agrees to administer that award.
  2. It is a condition of the award of a Scholarship that the nominee’s University agrees to administer the award and that, by the end of the period of the award, the Head of Department submits to the Secretary of the Review a statement indicating the Scholar’s progress with research during that period.
  3. Awards will normally be renewed for up to one year on receipt of separate reports from the student and his / her supervisor detailing the progress made in the previous year and the research plan for the following year. Annual reports due in 2017 should be submitted by 12th May 2017 by the Head of Department. The decision on whether or not to renew the award remains at the discretion of the Review.

Applications should be sent by email to:
