The Trustees of the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund are offering up eight bursaries of £10,000 to be awarded in open competition from British Universities running a full time Transport Masters course for the academic year 2018/19.
The aim of the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund in offering bursaries is to enrich the supply of transport professionals within the United Kingdom.

|The amount of each award will be £10,000 to cover both maintenance and fees. The bursary will be paid directly to the university at the commencement of the second term; and under no circumstances to the student. This will be a condition of acceptance.|

You must have a first degree of at least a 2.1 standard and be able to demonstrate a commitment to pursuing a career in transport in the UK.
The Trustees reserve the right to withdraw the Bursary should the recipient withdraw from or fail to attend the course, or be considered no longer suitable for any other reason.
In the first instance, you should submit an application for the MSc Transport and Planning, with a start date of 24 September 2018.
You must be recommended by the Course Supervisor, Dr Dimitris Potoglou, based on a personal interview. An explanation of the reasons for that recommendation must be provided.
You are therefore advised to contact Dr Dimitris Potoglou prior to applying for this scholarship.
The tutor’s recommendation and your personal statement are both of particular importance in the Trustees’ selection process. The quality of those items inevitably plays a great part in the decision-making process.
Recommended applicants must:
- complete an application form provided by the Course Supervisor
- provide a statement of their future career plans
- explain why the bursary is critical to their being able to commit to the course
- provide an expenditure budget and a statement of funding sources for their year of study.
