PhD Scholarship at the Development Planning Unit, University College London

Deadline: 30 April 2015 - 12:00am


Where: London, United Kingdom

Conveners: Bartlett Development Planning Unit, University College London

The Bartlett Development Planning Unit is offering the fully-funded Scholarship for doctoral studies on questions related to the Unit’s work.

In 2014 the DPU celebrated 60 years of education, training, research, consultancy and knowledge sharing in urban and regional development policy and planning in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. DPU’s focus on urban development and planning in what is now often referred to as ‘the Global South’ was unique in the UK and abroad at the time of its establishment in 1954, and when it moved to UCL from the Architectural Association in 1971. In a world predicted to be 75% urban by 2050, we continue to feel the urgency of our historical commitment to contributing to social and environmental justice through building the capacity of current and future institutions and generations of practitioners addressing urban, regional and national development. Firmly rooted in our academic obligation to challenge orthodox development agendas, we chose our 60th anniversary year to offer a doctoral scholarship scheme covering three years of full-time tuition and maintenance, 2 return flights and a fieldwork grant. This is the second year the scheme is running.

One award will be made, for three years of full-time study commencing September 2015.
