Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation Scholarship 

Applications are invited for the Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation Scholarship to support a suitably qualified postgraduate student for a three year PhD programme of research in Geography at Durham University, UK.

One Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation Scholarship is available, starting in the academic year 2015-16, funded by the Christopher Moyes Memorial Foundation (http://www.moyesfoundation.org) established in memory of Mr Christopher Moyes, OBE.

Applicants, who may be of any nationality, must possess a First or Upper Second Class degree, or equivalent in a relevant field of study.
