Josh Procter and Harry Hague


Physics students awarded prestigious scholarships to pursue PhDs in mathematical sciences

Two Hull Physics students have been awarded prestigious Martingale Scholarships for 2023. The scholarships will provide Josh Procter and Harry Hague with full funding to complete a Masters and PhD in Mathematics at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, UCL or KCL.

The application process was very competitive with candidates facing two rounds of assessments, followed by interviews at one of the five partner universities.

Josh, a third year BSc Theoretical Physics student, said: “I feel honoured to be offered a scholarship and am really excited at the prospect of studying Applied Mathematics at one of the partner universities. My lecturers in Physics and Maths have also prepared me well academically and have been great role models in their knowledge and presentation skills.”

Harry, a third year BSc Physics student said the scholarship has offered him an amazing opportunity.

He said: “I am delighted to be an offer holder. The Physics Department at Hull has provided me with a stellar education and helped me tremendously in the application process. I hope to use the scholarship to pursue a PhD in theoretical physics at one of the partner universities.”

Professor Brad Gibson, head of the Department of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Hull, said: “Watching the development of Josh and Harry over the past three years is exactly why myself and the Physics team at Hull do what it is that we do. We could not be more thrilled for them both, and very much look forward to watching them thrive as Postgraduate Students!”
