In 2011, we will be offering up to 20 SICSA prize studentships, across Scotland. We are looking for outstanding applicants in any area of computer science and informatics and we are particularly interested in applications from students who want to work in one of the SICSA research themes.

Funding information
SICSA prize studentships are funded jointly by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and the university where the studentship is held. Approximate funding equates to around £18000 per year for 3.5 years. This includes support for living expenses of around £13000, research expenses and postgraduate fees at the level charged to students who are UK/EU residents. Additional support may be available to students who are not UK/EU residents and who would normally be required to pay the full postgraduate fee. This level of support, however, depends on individual universities and cannot be guaranteed.

Where can I study?
SICSA is committed to Scottish research collaboration, including excellent researchers in smaller groups as well as those in larger units. Studentships are therefore available at all Scottish Universities that are members of SICSA.

To reinforce the collaborative nature of SICSA, each studentship will involve cross-site supervision. Formally, however, each student would be registered in the traditional manner, at a single degree-awarding institution.

Studentship conditions
It is a condition of the award of a studentship that SICSA-funded students must take a number of graduate training courses, attend at least one SICSA summer school and agree to participate in Scottish Graduate Academy activities.

Who can apply?
The SICSA Graduate Academy promotes excellence in computing science and informatics research and our aim is to attract the research leaders of the future, whatever their nationality or place of residence, to come and work with us in Scotland.

Applicants should possess:
- A First Class Honours Degree or equivalent in an appropriate subject, and/or;
- An MSc with Distinction

How do I apply?
SICSA usually offers a total of around 20 studentships per year and we are now accepting applications for the current round. The deadline for applications for this round is 2nd May 2011. Please see the timeline across the page and visit the further information page for details of how to make your application.

Disclaimer: Every effort has been made to ensure the above information is current and correct. However, applicants should contact the appropriate administering body before making an application, as details do change frequently.
