Kelvin Smith Fellowships and Scholarships
« on: Nov 22, 2009, 09:56 AM »
The University of Glasgow has a long and continuing tradition of investing in world-leading innovation and research.  The secrets of our success have been in:

• creating and promoting an excellent research environment in which to work and study;
• providing cutting-edge facilities and equipment; and
• ensuring that our research output is of the highest quality

Key to this success has been our commitment to investing in people with outstanding research capability and potential.

The prestigious Lord Kelvin/Adam Smith Fellowship and Scholarship schemes have been established to continue this investment, allowing the University to support outstanding researchers, in the early stages of their careers, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields. 

Stimulating and sustaining leading-edge interdisciplinary research in all areas, the schemes have been created in the names of two prominent historical figures who represent the University’s research contribution to the world:  Lord Kelvin and Adam Smith.

The Fellowships support researchers from across the world in establishing and developing strong independent careers by carrying out innovative research of international quality and reputation.

The Scholarships offer the opportunity for outstanding research students both from home and abroad to participate in some of the most exciting areas of research taking place at Glasgow whilst developing their research skills.
