The aim of the Newton PhD Scholarships is to facilitate the capacity building of individuals, and the building of sustainable, long-lasting links between the UK and the Philippines.

The programme is jointly funded by the Newton Agham Fund, the Commission on Higher Education, and the Department of Science and Technology and offers full-time PhD scholarships for Filipino researchers at a UK higher education institution.
