MRC offers cash greeting to students

March 9, 2001

The Medical Research Council is to raise its maintenance grant for students working towards their masters and PhDs to £10,000 a year and £12,500 in London.

Other initiatives include 80 extra masters degree studentships, funded from 2003, and 15 salaried pre-doctoral fellowship appointments a year.
