2-2.12 Considerations before applying - MRC


2.5 Applicants for fellowships expecting to receive their PhD

There are a number of early-career fellowships where applicants may apply without having their PhD, but where they expect to receive it by the time of their take-up of a fellowship. In this case, the prospective fellow must have obtained their PhD within the approved take-up period for the competition (advertised on the MRC website). Should the prospective fellow fail to obtain their PhD within the take-up period, the award will lapse; no extension will be permitted and they must re-apply. It is the responsibility of the fellow to provide documentary evidence of their PhD to the MRC by emailing it to fellows@mrc.ukri.org.
