We judge our applicants on their academic qualifications and work experience. There is alot of competition for places, so we choose only the best applicant for each scholarship.
The Prince of Wales Scholarship Programme (POWIS) is designed to give outstanding graduates the best opportunities by linking their doctoral research with an ambitious and growing welsh company.
These welsh companies host the scholar for the full three year project and design the research project and objectives.
Each scholar works towards a prestigious University of Wales PhD, whilst receiving valuable training in innovation and entrepreneurship and gaining hands-on work experience with a growing company.
