SCI Scholarships

The SCI Scholars fund, established in 1920, was endowed by the bequests of Rudolph Messel and John Gray, former presidents and founding members of SCI.

SCI is proud to offer 2-year scholarships to up to three outstanding PhD students who are approaching their final years of study. Thanks to generous funding from past SCI members, SCI offers £5,000 to each successful applicant as well as a host of other benefits which help to support the scholar as they move towards their next career step.
