Some of the University’s most promising postgraduate students helping to push the research boundaries in innovative technologies, theories and methodological approaches have been officially welcomed to the University.

The second in-take of the President’s Research Scholars were officially welcomed to Cardiff by President and Nobel Prize Winner, Professor Sir Martin Evans and Vice-Chancellor, Dr David Grant.

The President’s Research Scholarships were established to coincide with the inauguration of Professor Sir Martin Evans as Cardiff University’s new President in 2009.

The scholarships are designed to attract students seeking to work on exciting and challenging projects in dynamic and well-resourced research environments under the supervision of successful and established researchers.

University President, Sir Martin Evans said: "The President’s Research Scholarships offer outstanding students the financial support needed to continue their postgraduate research studies.

"These scholarships are designed to ensure that lack of funds do not become a barrier to continuing cutting-edge postgraduate research.

"I am delighted to officially welcome these students to the University to continue our tradition of supporting innovative and world-leading research."

Many of the students have already joined the University, the majority of them from the UK but including outstanding students from countries worldwide.

To mark the occasion, the President’s Research Scholars received a specially commissioned scarf. Further information and profiles of the President’s Research Scholarships are available at:
