Newton-Mosharafa PhD Programme For Egyptian Researchers

The Newton-Mosharafa Fund is £50 million, seven-year science and innovation partnership between the UK and Egypt.

The Fund brings together the British and Egyptian scientific research and innovation sectors to find joint solutions to the challenges facing Egypt in economic development and social welfare. Read the Newton Mosharafa Fund brief.

Through Newton-Mosharafa, we will:

  • build the skills and knowledge of British and Egyptian scientists through training and researcher mobility schemes;
  • support British and Egyptian researchers to develop new innovations and partnerships in development areas;
  • facilitate collaboration between universities and industry to ensure that new research can benefit all in society.

The PhD Programme supports Egyptian researchers to do their PhD at UK Higher Education institutions. The programme covers all fees and living/travel expenses. The programme will support both general missions (full degree scholarships three years), as well as joint supervisions (for students to do research for a year at a UK university as part of their Egyptian PhD).

For a full list of requirements, eligibility criteria and instructions on applying, please see the detailed guidelines in English   and in Arabic

Ian Parry Scholarship Prize 2021 For Young Photo Journalists

Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. He was just 24 years of age. Aidan Sullivan, then picture editor, and Ian’s friends and family created the Ian Parry Scholarship in order to build something positive from such a tragic death. Each year we hold an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.

The Ian Parry Scholarship is divided into two categories: The Sunday Times Award for Achievement and The Canon Award for Potential.

The entry criteria for both is the same and the judges will make their decisions based on the individual merits of the entries. Entrants must submit a portfolio and a clear proposal of a project they would undertake if they won the scholarship.
