SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Type: Undergraduate

Posted by:

Studying abroad to attain greater academic height is the dream of a large number of people. However, this often remains a dream as the cost of funding an international study is quite enormous. Some institutions have realized this and therefore offer scholarships, ranging from full-tuition scholarship, 50% and 25% tuition fee discounts. Some of these scholarships do not require a separate application, as applicants are automatically considered based on certain criteria placed by the sponsors while others may require thorough application.

However the case may be, your personal statement, motivation letters and previous academic records are what you’d most likely be judged with. Dedicate ample time to writing your essays and letters, ask someone to help you read through, ensure it aligns with the goal of the sponsor and your dreams might just become realities.

In order to contribute to your search for good funding opportunity, I made you a list of some of the scholarships for international students.

Although, this article does not exhaust the list, you can find other great funding opportunities from previous articles on the website.

NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY Ph.D. RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

OVERVIEW OF RESEARCH

Babies born prematurely (<32 weeks gestation) are functionally immature, especially in terms of gastrointestinal and immunological activity and at increased risks of severe disease. Over 30% of preterm infants develop necrotizing enterocolitis (inflammatory mediated bowel condition) and/or late-onset sepsis (bacteria translocating into the bloodstream). Together, these diseases account for more deaths per year then all of the childhood cancer combined, with survivors suffering significant long-term morbidity, including poor growth and cognitive outcomes. This Ph.D. studentship aims to reduce disease in preterm infants by combining discovering and translational research. The student will generate and analyze multi-omics data from the Great North Neonatal Biobank, which contains >100,000 samples from more than 1000 preterm infants. Associations will be further integrated to determine causality and investigate potential mechanisms using a novel human preterm epithelial co-culture model.
The student will become an important part of a diverse and enthusiastic team. Complete interdisciplinary training will be provided in a range of wet-lab (e.g., microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, tissue culture) and bioinformatic/analytical skills. After the project, the student will have made an important contribution to the development of novel biomarkers and therapeutics for the detection and prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis and late-onset sepsis in preterm infants.
