Funding area: International, Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
These Scholarships arise from a bequest from the late Professor John Moyes Lessells, an eminent mechanical engineer who emigrated to the United States of America in 1920. The first award was made in 1985, and since that time over 100 scholarships have been awarded, to allow early career engineers based in Scotland to travel and collaborate with their fellow engineers across the globe.
These Scholarships are open to individuals who are pursuing their PhD or postdoctoral research and/or are already in employment, but wish to pursue a research project to further their Engineering career.
To be eligible for the scholarship, you must have Graduated with Honours or Higher Degree in Engineering from a Scottish Higher Education institution (HEI), or be currently pursuing PhD research in Engineering at a Scottish HEI. All branches of Engineering, including computer and software engineering are considered.
