Who we’re looking for

Scholarships are available to graduates with at least a 2.1 degree in physics or a related subject such as engineering or mathematics. They will be awarded to the very best individuals who impress us with their academic record, physics subject knowledge and commitment to teaching.

Where you’ll be based

To be an IOP Scholar, you must secure a place on a non-salaried teacher training course in England by September 2020.
