Mathematical Sciences Winsten Doctoral Scholarship

2016-17 entry

Our Winsten Scholarship is available to students applying to study on a PhD (MPhD) course in our Department of Mathematical Sciences. One Winsten Scholarship will be offered in 2016-17.

If you have an excellent academic background and the potential for future achievement you could be eligible. Once awarded, you’ll receive the scholarship for three years of your PhD (subject to satisfactory progression). The scholarship includes:

a fee waiver equal to the Home/EU fee (international students will need to pay the balance of their fees)
Proficio funding, which can be used to ‘buy’ advanced skills training
Professor Chris Winsten The scholarship is named after Professor Chris Winsten, an internationally renowned mathematician who worked at Essex for more than 25 years. He applied mathematical and statistical ideas to areas of economics, leading to the eponymous Prais-Winsten transformation which is still used by modern economists today and to the groundbreaking Beckmann-McGuire-Winsten (1955) approach to transportation economics. Professor Winsten had an intuitive geometrical approach that found solutions to difficult analytic problems. He left the bulk of his fortune to further the reputation of Essex mathematics.

University of Essex Mathematical Sciences Winsten Scholarship
2016-17
The Winsten Scholarship is available to students applying to study on a PhD (MPhD)
course in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The Winsten Scholarship is named
after Professor Chris Winsten, who was an internationally renowned mathematician that
worked at the University for more than 25 years. His reputation is based on his
application of mathematical and statistical ideas to areas of economics leading to the
eponymous Prais-Winsten transformation still used by modern economists today and to
the groundbreaking Beckmann-McGuire-Winsten (1955) approach to transportation
economics. Professor Winsten had an intuitive geometrical approach that found
solutions to difficult analytic problems. He left the bulk of his fortune to further the
reputation of Essex mathematics and the Winsten Scholarship is key to that. One
scholarship will be offered in 2016-17 and will be awarded to a student who can
demonstrate an excellent academic background and the potential for future
achievement. It will be awarded for each year of study during the standard minimum
period of enrolment, subject to satisfactory progress.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions apply to the University of Essex Mathematical Sciences
Winsten Scholarship awarded to a student entering our University in October 2016.
What does the award offer?
The award consists of a full Home/EU fee waiver or equivalent fee discount for overseas
students (this amount was £4,050 in 2015-16) and Proficio funding, which may be used
to ‘buy’ advanced skills training.
Who is eligible?
 This award is available to UK, EU and international full-time PhD students;
 Successful international applicants will need to fund the balance of the tuition
fees;
 You must hold an offer from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the
University of Essex for a PhD (not MPhil or Masters by Dissertation);
 Receipt of the scholarship is subject to applicants firmly accepting the offer of
study, registering as students of the University of Essex for the 2016-17
academic year, and meeting all conditions of our offer;
 No alternative form of the scholarship is available and the award cannot be
deferred to a later year from the one for which you are admitted;
 Applicants may only receive one award administered by the University of Essex.
In the event that an applicant is already in receipt of another University award
(including the Alumni Loyalty Discount), the larger of the two awards will be kept
and the other released;
 Where a student applies for and is awarded a scholarship and subsequently
obtains full external funding, the University will rescind the scholarship offer.
Where partial external funding is obtained, the department may choose to
continue, reduce or rescind the scholarship offer as it sees fit.
How do I apply?
You should complete the University of Essex Mathematical Sciences Winsten
Scholarship application form available on the website. Please note that you must be
applying for a new programme of study at the University of Essex, starting in October
2016, in order to be eligible. Applications for the University of Essex Mathematical
Sciences Winsten Scholarship close on 22nd July 2016. Applications must be received
by the specified closing date.
How are candidates selected?
Candidates will be selected for the award of a scholarship on the following criteria:
 academic ability – based on previous academic qualifications, normally a
Master’s degree with distinction or merit;
 research potential – based on the candidate’s research proposal submitted
with their application, as well as their statement on the scholarship application
form; and
 professional development potential – based on the candidate’s skills, aptitudes
and potential to support their department’s undergraduate teaching or
research activities.
When are successful candidates notified?
Successful candidates will normally be notified by our Funding Team within six weeks of
the closing date for applications. Acceptance of the scholarship constitutes acceptance
of these terms and conditions. A scholarship will not commence until the student formally
registers on a relevant course at the University of Essex.
How will the money be paid?
Our scholarships are awarded for each year of study during the standard minimum
period of enrolment for your degree. The fee element will be deducted automatically.
Awards are granted for one year in the first instance but will be renewed, subject to the
award holder’s satisfactory progress (as defined by the Code of Practice: Postgraduate
Research Degrees), for a second and third year – up to a maximum tenure of nine terms
or three years, provided the award holder is still engaged in full-time research (and
excepting the circumstances stated in the section on termination, below). Where
progress is satisfactory, renewal of the award is automatic. Students who wish to extend
their minimum period of study will have to meet the additional costs themselves.
Intermission
Intermission from registration will only be granted in exceptional cases. During the period
of intermission, scholarship payments will be suspended. Periods of intermission will not
normally be granted for periods longer than six months. Applications for intermission
should be made in advance and require the support of the supervisor and approval from
our Dean of Postgraduate Research & Education.
Illness
Periods of illness for a continuous period of two weeks or more require medical
certification and should be reported to the supervisor. After eight weeks of certified
illness the scholarship will be suspended until the student resumes full-time study.
Should a period of illness exceed four weeks, students are advised to request a period
of intermission (see above).
Holidays
Scholarship holders are entitled to a maximum of eight weeks’ holiday (including bank
holidays and the University closure at Christmas) per annum and pro-rata. Holidays
should be agreed in advance with the supervisor and, in cases where the scholar is
engaged in teaching and demonstrating, with the approval of the head of the student’s
department, school or centre.
Termination of Scholarship
Our University will terminate a scholarship when progress or performance is deemed to
be unsatisfactory. The scholarship will be terminated if a student ceases to be registered
as a student with the University, or for good cause at the discretion of our Dean of
Postgraduate Research & Education, or his/her nominee for this purpose. If a
scholarship is terminated prematurely for any reason, a scholar must repay to the
University any monies including maintenance, travel, subsistence, fees overpaid from
the date of the termination of the scholarship. If a scholar submits his/her thesis before
the end of the scholarship, the scholarship will be terminated on the date of submission.
If a scholar takes up full-time employment whilst in receipt of a scholarship, the
scholarship will be terminated as of the first day of employment.
Transferability
Change of course within the University of Essex will not affect the continuation of a
scholarship, providing that the student continues to be registered on an eligible course
within the same department.
Resolution of disputes
In cases not covered by the above terms and conditions, or where a student claims
exceptional circumstances, or disputes a decision not to make payments due under a
scholarship, they should first put their case in writing to the Head of Funding who will
consider the circumstances and uphold, amend or revoke the original decision. Should
a student be unhappy with this decision they should follow the university complaints
procedure: http://www.essex.ac.uk/about/governance/policies/complaints.aspx

By accepting the scholarship, recipients are giving the University permission to use their
details for promotional purposes and may be asked to provide a case study which may
be used in University publications or on the website.
