Newton-Mosharafa PhD Programme 2020 for Egyptian Researchers

Application Deadline: October 1st 2020

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
