How to find funding for a clinical DPhil/PhD
There are a number of options for funding a DPhil/PhD. For an overview, see the Oxford Medical Sciences - funding pages.
National funding competitions run several times a year but local schemes tend to be once a year. Many are highly competitive fellowships that fund the basic salary, and some provide allowances for equipment and travel.
Given the competitive nature of the fellowships, an individual’s chance of success will be increased if they have already demonstrated an aptitude for research through publications.
