John Guest Phillips Travelling Scholarship

Two annual travelling scholarships to the value of £500 each, or one annual travelling scholarship to the value of £1,000, may be awarded to registered full-time postgraduate research students. The purpose of the scholarships is to ensure that promising research students are given the opportunity to extend their knowledge of their subject, either within this country or overseas. Note: The scholarships will not normally be awarded to fund conference attendance.

The John Guest Phillips Travelling Scholarship was established in memory of Loughborough University of Technology's fourth Vice-Chancellor, Professor J G Phillips, who died in office in 1987. Professor Phillips had a special concern for young research workers who showed promise, and the Scholarship has been set up to provide financial support for travel for postgraduate research students at the University, a project which we feel Professor Phillips would have fully supported. The Scholarship is being supported by the John Guest Phillips Memorial Fund, which was established by Professor Phillips' family with the University as the beneficiary.
