Academics beyond Borders is now calling for applications from PhD students enrolled in Ukrainian universities. There are 14 remote places available for candidates whose research at their home universities is being affected by the war on Ukraine. All places are funded by the University of Edinburgh and require no fees from any students accepted onto the scheme.

The Academics beyond Borders scheme provides remote academic support for PhD students affected by conflicts and/or repression. Through the scheme, PhD students enrolled in universities in countries affected by conflict or repressive regimes can enrol as "remote visiting students" at the University and receive support at a distance:

  • remote doctoral supervision by academics of the School of Social and Political Science
  • online academic mentoring from either a fellow postgraduate student or a member of staff from the School of Social and Political Science
  • access to the University’s electronic library resources

All applications should be sent to academicsbeyondborders@ed.ac.uk by Tuesday 16 August 2022, for a start of the programme on 1 October 2022 at the University of Edinburgh. The call will remain open beyond that date based on need and the capacity to respond.
