Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence (European Union) scholars at Nottingham

Here is what one of our 2015 Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence (European Union) winners says about their scholarship:

"The University of Nottingham is a world-leading university and is well-known in the field of psychology for its cutting-edge neuroimaging facilities and research power... This scholarship gives me the financial security to pursue my personal and professional ambitions without need to work. It enables me to focus... on my research project, but also to dedicate my spare time to related causes I care about, such as public engagement with psychological research."

Chiara Papini from Italy, PhD Psychology.
