The University of Edinburgh’s School of GeoSciences is offering a number of fully funded Masters scholarships for Scottish and EU nationals with an interest in studying Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
The scholarships are available as part of the university’s Highly Skilled Workforce Scholarships scheme, and will cover UK/EU tuition fees. Eligible students should apply before the second round application deadline of 30 June 2014. The funding is available to UK nationals who are permanently domiciled in Scotland (but not elsewhere in UK) as well as EU nationals who have been accepted on the MSc programmes. The School advises that potential applicants check out eligibility details before applying.
The University of Edinburgh is home to the UK’s very first CCS Masters programme, and the course is taught by a number of leading experts in the field of CCS. The climate technology has been increasingly recognised as a technology option that could be critical to avoiding dangerous climate change. Commercial-scale demonstration projects are being developed across the world. In the UK, two full-chain CCS projects have moved to design stage after securing funding from the UK Government’s £1bn CCS Commercialisation Programme.
