SPRU - Science Policy Research Unit

50th Anniversary Scholarships

To celebrate fifty years of shaping science, technology and innovation research, teaching and policy, we have launched a new scholarship programme to enable the very best students from around the world to study a Masters at SPRU. 

The world is in transition and needs new innovation policy for transformative change. Given our rich history SPRU is well placed to support this challenge through teaching the next generation of science, technology and innovation policy leaders as well as developing new research programmes. SPRU has developed a scholarship fund to help students with the most potential and ambition to take a step towards being a future policy shaper.

Over the course of SPRU’s 50-year history many alumni have shaped and are continuing to shape research and policy around the world, based on their initial training at SPRU. The SPRU 50th Anniversary Scholarships are funded by SPRU alumni and friends who share our vision for innovation policy for transformative change.

In recognition of the generosity of our benefactors, many of the scholarships are named. When you apply for a SPRU 50th Anniversary Scholarship you are considered for all named scholarships under this scheme, but if you have a preference please state this on the application form.
